Japan Trip - Autumn 2018. 

26th October to 6th November


Keep in touch with all the new Koi we are buying on our latest buying trips to Japan - and reserve your Koi before we even get home!

This page contains bowl pictures of many, but not all of the Koi purchased on our buying trips to Japan.. If you are interested in any our new Koi please email us at , or call our office and we will confirm costs and availability.

Unless otherwise indicated all Koi advertised on this page will be available for sale. We will try to update each picture with those Koi reserved to keep the page as up to date as possible. All major credit cards accepted! - see what's new for details. 


It can easily take us three weeks or so after we return from a buying trip before we start to photograph and post individual Koi pictures on our web site as we allow the Koi to settle in and de-stress before attempting to get good pictures. This can be frustrating for non-local customers, who cannot easily visit us, and who patiently wait for pictures to appear only to find that the Koi they were interested in has been sold before the pictures appear. So on this page, you can get a good preview of most of the Koi we are choosing and buying before we get home, and certainly way before the better quality individual pictures start appearing.


Click View the videos which should take you straight to our video library. No downloading is necessary so access is fast. We will also be loading videos straigh on to our Facebook page - apologies if you are not particularly Facebook literate - join the club - but posting picys and videos is quick and easy and finding them to view is also easy so I have had to move with the times!


To purchase any Koi PLEASE ring our offices on 01494 882600 and give our staff the box number if available and details of the specific Koi in which you are interested. We will require a 50% deposit to be paid before any Koi can be reserved, with the balance payable at the end of the quarantine period, normally four to six weeks after arrival in the UK.


Please note that to be absolutely fair, when two or more customers enquire/wish to reserve the same Koi, the one that pays the deposit first will be allocated that Koi.

Please also note that if you reserve any Koi you are committing to purchasing that Koi. We cannot reserve Koi on the basis that you will confirm the purchase only after viewing. However should any Koi reserved arrive damaged or otherwise obviously not as pictured then of course you will not be expected to complete the purchase and your deposit will be refunded or you may choose another Koi. Please download our full Koi reservations terms and conditions here.
