    Narita's December 11, 2016 Koi Sale

    Ryuki Narita has become the best known high-end koi dealer. He certainly has the knowledge and business relationships with both breeders and top tier hobbyists to be extraordinarily successful, and he adds to those personal qualities some of the finest koikeeping facilities in the world. But, he is so well-known because his marketing is superior. How many other koi dealers trading 5-figure and higher koi do you know? He is not alone, but he may well be the only one ordinary hobbyists have ever heard of.

    An example of his marketing is the upcoming sale of some gorgeous koi produced by numerous breeders from across Japan. If you've not checked it out, here is a link to Mark Gardner's site where it is noted:

    WOW! This represents a great eye for high-quality. Even to be offered to Narita Koi Farm, it must be known that their clients are Serious Prime Time "show" koi hobbiest. I'm scared to ask how much $$$.

    Dollar is up, so the 8,000,000 yen Sanke is roughly $70,000. If interested, best to inquire about additional charges. But, I guess some who are willing to spend $70,000 on a koi do not worry over the 'little stuff'.
