As we travel across the country each year we are exposed to many breeders and importers of koi, it has been our great joy to learn more about each company. There is one company in our minds that stands far above the rest, you can pick their fish out of a pond of mixed fish by their health, strength and the crispness of the patterns they display. These Nishikigoi are regarded as "Living Jewels" and "Living Art." The elegant and graceful swim of Nishikigoi leaves a deep impression with everyone.
We’re proud to announce that Nature Scapes has been selected as a distributor of these living works of art by Kodama Koi.
A bit more about Kodama Koi: “Since we were founded in Japan almost 50 years ago, our family has been recognized as a top koi dealer in the industry. We’ve had the honor of raising award-winning koi, including five Grand Champions at the All Japan Koi Show and over 185+ recorded champions.
Raising champion quality koi is a tradition that we hold great honor to have achieved. We feed the best koi food to our Japanese Koi and raise them in similar conditions the Niigata region. Our Koi have excellent color with unique features that will add a beautiful new pattern to your pond.
It all started when I was a young boy in Japan over half a century ago. Growing up, Koi Master Mamoru Kodama, my father raised me to appreciate and love koi for the natural beauty they bring into this world. I remember the day he founded Miyoshiike Co., Ltd. to provide this same joyful experience through healthy and beautiful koi. With Miyoshiike, my father soon became one of the most well known koi dealers in Japan as well as in the rest of the world. This is an honor we are very proud of.
I have vivid memories sitting at many All Japan Koi Shows, hearing the koi who been named Grand Champion, and feeling honored to have been a part of their beautiful life. I wanted other people to experience the same feeling of raising such a lovely creature. With the lessons and family secrets my father taught me, we opened Kodama Koi Farm and Gardens to bring magnificent Koi to the United States and Canada.
Hand-Selected And Raised On Our Farm
Now when my father and I hand-select koi throughout the year, they have a place to thrive and grow into outstanding creatures at Kodama Koi Farm, our 12 acre farm in Oahu, Hawaii. It has 3 million gallons of water with very similar mineral rich water as the koi’s birthplace in Niigata, Japan. It is truly an honor for Kodama Koi Farms to be one of the largest koi farms in the world. But Kodama Koi Farm wasn’t enough for these marvelous creatures and so we have continued to expand our operations. My father and I wanted to ensure from the day our Koi left the farm till they were on your doorstep, their lives continued to be superb. Just as you need to trust in the quality of the Koi you purchase, we need to trust in the home and care our Koi receive.
Bringing Peace And Tranquility To Ponds What we all have in common here is that koi give us peaceful joy within our fast-paced and often busy lives, which is the sad reality of modern society in our world. We want to bring peace and tranquility to the United States through koi. All koi enthusiasts enjoy koi in their own different ways and now it is time for you to find yours. Who would have thought with my enjoyment, I would have the privilege to be a part of more than a half million koi’s lives? I have my father to thank for that. Niigata is the cradle for quality Nishikigoi. There are about 200 breeders who work hard to breed more and more beautiful Nishikigoi. Working with them for 40 years, we have established the excellent relationships that no other Koi companies have. The relationship with the Niigata breeders is our most valuable asset. Besides, we are not just buyer - supplier relationship. We are friends under the same mission: Introduce beautiful Japanese Nishikigoi to hobbyists all over the world. We will continue to work closely with them and work hard to introduce their beautiful artworks to Koi lovers in the US.”
