Koi breeder Oya has special Jumbo Taisho Sanke that we're pleased to offer. These are tosai (1-year old) and already range in size from around 11–13in (28–32cm) as of May 2017. As a part of this special Azukari (boarding) promotion, these koi will be boarded for FREE in Oya's mud ponds in Japan. Then they'll be harvested in October and arrive in Hawaii in November for quarantining. You can expect to receive the koi around December this year or January 2018.
Pick one of these jumbo Taisho Sanke and watch how big it grows in your pond! Look for clearly defined hi and dynamic patterns on these lovely 10 Taisho Sanke.
Prices range from $1,200–$1,500 per koi. Shipping is paid for separately.
- Based on his years of raising koi, Mr. Oya judged all these koi as female; but it is not guaranteed.
- If your koi is not harvested alive, you will receive a replacement at Kodama Koi Farm's discretion

As you can see from the koi examples above, jumbo tosai koi can be around 1.5–2 times larger than regular-size koi of the same age and have the potential to grow large-and-in-charge. If you want to experience raising a large, beautiful koi, now's your chance!
