Japan Koi Buying trips

At Koi Water Garden, we are able to offer competitive prices on high grade top quality Japanese Koi in all sizes, and travel to Japan twice per year to seek out the very best Koi from the Autumn and Spring harvests. . On this page you will find pictures and videos access to all of our new Koi from our most recent buying trip.


Our next buying trip will be Autum 2020. Videos will be posted on most newly purchased Koi  - click here to view. . Videos will also be available on our Facebook site. Please note that many of the Koi pictured on this page from our last buying trip - Autumn 2019 will now have been sold - Please check the main web site pages for current stock availability



Japan Trip - Autumn 2019. 

24th October - 2nd 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.

Our Blog has moved!

We are now writing our daily Blog on Facebook, simply to save me time and keep me sane. Upating both web pages and Facebook every day takes hours and so we have decided to post still pictures on the this, the Japan trips page of the main web site and the Blog and videos on Facebook and DROPBOX. So please follow us here if you enjoyed reading the blog!
