Its tosai time and the Exclusively Koi team is heading to Niigata, the home land of Japanese Nishikigoi, to hand-select Koi for the upcoming Spring season!
They’ll depart on Wednesday 22 February for a week-and-a-half long trip, returning on 1 March. During the trip they’ll be visiting breeders and viewing Koi at many of their favourite farms across the region, including Dainichi, Isa, Hoshikin, and Nishikigoi Niigata Direct to name just a few.
If there is anything in particular that you’re after and you would like their team to look out for on the trip, please contact Ryan on 07540 361422.
During this time Exclusively Koi, based in Sidcup, Kent, will still be open for business. For all other enquiries please contact Kev on 07718 087564 or visit their website at exclusivelykoi.co.uk
