The Nishikigoi Breeder of Japan is a testimony to skill, hard work and dedication. Through the weather and elements, and through adversity, they continue their master craft; to create living, moving art that inspires the world with it's color and it's beauty.
The skills needed to produce these moving masterpieces are a complex science, the work and effort required; extremely arduous.
For over a century Nishikigoi have been bred in the mountains of Niigata, and every autumn the Nishikigoi breeders of Niigata make their way to the mountain mud ponds to harvest their Koi. From this point on, it is a race against the clock and the weather, to bring in all their swimming jewels before the heavy Niigata snow blankets the region.
With over one hundred Nishikigoi breeders located in Niigata Prefecture, the region is well known throughout Japan for it's cultural heritage of Nishikigoi breeding. Currently (as of 2020) there are 99 members of the Niigata District Chapter of "The All Japan Nishikigoi Promotion Association," otherwise called "Zen Nihhon Nishkigoi Shinkokai" in Japanese.
This organization is comprised of Nishikigoi breeders, caretakers and distributors whom share the interest and love of Nishikigoi. Their collective actions promote Nishikigoi through special events, Koi shows, Koi Auctions, TV programs, exhibitions and other promotional activities. Of the 99 Niigata district members, most are actively engaged in the export of their livestock. KOITAXI.COM Co.,Ltd is a Niigata district member of the All Japan Nishikigoi Promotion Association, and we regularly engage with our fellow members, and contribute in the shared promotional activities of our organization.
