      New fish from Japan trip

      Bought more than I planned, but looking forward to getting them in my pond. I like male koi, so most are boys.

      These are really nice. I would love to go to Japan one day and pick out some koi.. I wonder if you would give us an idea of how much these koi were? Just so i know how much money im going to need to save..
      Thank you

      I will let the OP answer your question but typically, koi quality , selection and price are fully subjective and very personal... if you know what I mean.

      For pricing and quality, look into pskoi ( Russ ) link, he going to Japan multiple times / year and listed every fishes with price, that what I being doing to learn and gather my budget.

      Prices ranged from $300 to $3500 - I'd prefer not to list them all.

      You should definitely go to Japan if you can. It was my dream trip. I went for a week, stayed in Ojiya, and visited over 30 farms/breeders - guided by Taro Kodama. Also got to check out the Nogyosai Koi show (for area breeders) on my last day. So many nice fish.

      All are spectacular, but my favorites are the Kujaku and the Goshiki.
