What Determines the Price of Koi?

Selecting Koi is a very important procedure in producing good Koi. The price
of Koi is determined by its lineage, variety, and the number of Koi it
was chosen from.

A pair of Koi produces more than half a million babies. Then, we choose
100,000 out of 500,000, 10,000 out of 100,000, 1000 out of 10,000 and 10
out of 1000. The price of Koi differs depending upon the level above
that the Koi are from.

The finest quality diamonds are chosen and polished by skilled
craftsmen, and also, the clarity of a diamond determines its value.

Our Nishikigoi are chosen by breeders with a 40-year experience. Brands
are established by the breeders, and these brands affect Koi’s value.

Also, just like dogs, the lineage is a crucial factor for Nishikigoi.
The Koi KKF owns have parents with champion titles in Japan, and that is
proof of their good lineage, like a certificate of pedigree, so to
speak. Champions at National Koi Shows in Japan are worth more than
$300,000 each.

Our goal is your complete satisfaction.

If something unfavorable should occur with your transaction,

please contact us before leaving negative feedback.

We would like a chance to provide you with the best koi buying experience possible.

Thank you.

**Please understand, we cannot guarantee the sex of the Koi even though we use 
our very best judgment with the expertise and experience we have. 
We try to check the signs and indication of sex, but some Koi are very difficult
to distinguish between male or female.
This is why even the breeders are not always accurate on the sex of their Koi.

Kodama Koi Farm will guarantee the life of your koi during shipment
and within 24 hours of koi delivery. 
If anything should happen to your koi during shipment,
or within the first  24 hours of you receiving your koi,
please contact us.


The cost of shipping your eBay koi is FREE*! 
We can overnight ship to anywhere in the
US mainland and Canada. 

Please read: Important News for Our Canada Customers.

Also Kodama Koi Farm is required to charge a $10 Bond Fee

and a $16 OGD Processing Fee on all koi shipments.

If you wish to receive your koi on Saturday, there will be an extra $14.50 charge. 
We will only be able to deliver if your area receives Saturday delivery. 
Please keep in mind that if there are any delays with the shiping company
then you would not receive your koi until Monday.

**Local pickup from our farm in Mililani, Hawaii is also available.

If you would like to combine Kodama Koi together in one medium box,
then you may ship up to three koi that are 16 inches or less.
Any koi over the 18.6 inch ships in one box alone. 
Please feel free to email our office if you have any other questions
regarding combining more than one koi together.

For Hawaii residents, we will charge State Tax 4.712%


Seller will charge 5% taxes plus additional Provincial tax depending on the Province. 

Tax rates vary. 


*California Residents will be charged 7.75% tax


*We will not ship out your koi without first contacting you.  Our office will need at least two days
notice prior to shipping out to set up your shipping date (for example - to ship on Wednesday,
we need to know by closing time on Monday, 3pm HST).  The two days allows us to get
all paperwork done and have the health status of your koi checked prior to shipment.

**Please remember that koi are living animals, and could fall ill at any time. 
If for any reason your koi cannot ship out, you will be contacted and receive a full refund.
