Spring Trip

Return to the Mud Ponds: April/May

releasing koi back into mud ponds

In the Spring, the Japan Trip has two focuses. The first is to help the breeders return the koi that were selected to grow out back to the mud ponds. The second is to purchase some of the highest quality tosai to bring back to the USA.

Tosai koi house

Many breeders have limited space in their mud ponds therefore some of the best Jumbo Tosai are left in the koi houses and are available for purchase. Because of this, the Spring Trip is the best time to buy Tosai and Jumbo Tosai.

Due to the long standing relationships that our team has with the Japanese Koi Breeders, we have access to some of the highest quality tosai from many different breeders.

Weather: You can expect mild temperatures during the day with a bit of a chill in the evenings.
