1945 Koi Fun Fact

1945 was a significant year for Koi Breeders. It was the year that Yamabuki Ogon (Solid Yellow/Gold) and the Platinum Ogon (Metallic White) fish was developed and refined.

This was a major advancement for Koi Breeders, enabling them to develop a wide variety of new color patterns and varieties of Koi fish that we know and love today, covering all the color shades of the rainbow! Mamuro Kodama says, “Instead of giving Platinum or Gold jewelry to a loved one in the form of jewelry, give them Yamabuki Ogon or Platinum Ogon Nishikigoi!”

Nishikigoi means - Beautiful Koi
