Japanese Kanji Characters for "Nishikigoi"

NISHIKIGOI

WHAT IS NISHIKIGOI?

Nishikigoi, often referred to as Koi, is a variation of carp fish which through selective breeding have evolved to display a variety of patterns and colors. In addition to this, selective breeding has been used to produce Koi with traits such as large bodies, reflective scales, metallic-like skin, variated-scale patterns and light reflective luster. These magestically colored carp originated in Yamakoshi village in Niigata prefecture of Japan. Considered to be lucky, Koi have garnered much attention worldwide by pond and aquarium enthusiasts.
