Product Details

Koi2Kichi  is not just a book it’s a Nishikigoi experience. It's not just a book, not even just two books, but rather a completely original and totally unique package.

Koi2Kichi is a journey in two books. The first book - The path to understanding - from Mistake to Mystique - deals with all and every aspect of Koi, from a detailed work about how Koi and the Koi industry emerged, water,  an incredibly detailed segment on state of the art pond design, to health aspects, Koi shows and the definitive work on Tategoi. This aspect especially has been laboured over by Peter for years – the understanding of a lifetime in Koi by its leading non Japanese protagonist.

The second book - The path to Yamakoshi - the highways and the byways. This book takes us on four basic journeys through the mountains of Yamakoshi and is divided up into four Koi tours. Starting from Nagaoka/Ojiya it takes an incredible journey through the legendary villages of Niigata and visits literally hundreds of the leading breeders. It not only shows you where they are and how to find them, it actually takes you there!

It reveals incredible details about many of the world leading breeders. It doesn’t just take you there through descriptive writing, it also provides a series of maps. These maps have been developed over more than twenty years and show each key village and breeder. These awesome maps help readers follow the book and locate any breeder or village on the journeys.  These maps are incredibly detailed down to even showing  individual mud ponds!

Koi2Kichi also presents a Yamakoshi overview map showing not only all the villages in relation to each other, but also the main roads linking them. Almost enough to arrive with the book and visit any Koi breeder in Yamakoshi. We say almost enough because as if that were not enough there is more.... During 2003 our team went to Niigata with the worlds leading Koi Videographer Nik Read from New Vision Productions and painstakingly filmed every bend, turn, nook and cranny. We also visited each and every main breeder and village and filmed them too!  The resulting K2K DVD combines with the book to offer a definitive who’s who and what’s what multimedia representation of this legendary region.

The Koi2Kichi package includes two books totaling almost six hundred pages and hundreds of photos taken by Peter Waddington and Nigel Caddock over many years. Many of these pictures have never been shown anywhere before. It also includes the village and breeder maps PLUS the Yamakoshi overview map....AND the tour on DVD all in one package!

The Koi2Kichi package consists of :

• Book 1 - The path to understanding

• Book 2 - The path to Yamakoshi

• Village & Breeders Tour Maps

• Yamakoshi Nishikigoi Map

• DVD of the tours complete with small surprise outtake segment that comes complete with humour warning!

All this is packaged in a format that has also been painstakingly designed to be both practical and appropriate to reflect the material included. As mentioned in the previous issue of NI there will be a two formats available: Hardback Version and Deluxe Limited Edition Version.

The material is the same but the presentation different.

If you bought the original Koi Kichi - Then Koi2Kichi - Is a Must for you .... you simply cannot afford not to have a copy ...

This is the most exciting project of a generation and we hope to inspire another with it.
