The 2020 award winners were decided by our elite judges, sponsors, and koi show participants. These are the best of the best koi, submitted to our koi show, from over 300 koi.
Isa Koi Farm was founded by his father, Hajime Isa in 1971. As the second generation Koi breeder, Mr. Mitsunori Isa is pushing the quality standard of Isa Koi Farm very high. As his company motto “Pursuit the one” says, he goal is to breed an ultimate beauty, in other words, grand champion title at All Japan Koi Show.
In 2013, he won grand champion with his Showa at All Niigata Koi Breeder Koi Show (Nogyosai). In 2019, he won the same title again with his Kohaku at the same show. His passion for the ultimate beauty evolves his Koi every year.
Along with Mr. Futoshi Mano, Mr. Isa is not only a top breeder in Japan but also a leader of the Nishikigoi industry in Japan. It is our honor to have Mr. Isa as our judge this time.
Losing his father young, he has worked so hard with his brothers to build the world renown Koi farm. In the Koi hobby, it is hard to find somebody who does not know the “Dainichi” name even if you are new.
Dainichi Koi Farm has produced many grand champions in Japan as well as outside Japan. The grand champion Kohaku at the last All Japan Koi show is still very fresh in our memory.
We are very honored to have Mr. Futoshi Mano, the owner of Dainichi Koi Farm, as one of the judges for our first Koi show. Together with Mr. Isa, he is a leader of the Nishikigoi industry in Japan.
