Koi TV® is proud to present a new weekly video episode “Let’s talk Koi” by Mamoru Kodama. Each week Mamoru San will pick a koi from Kodama Koi Farm and talk about its quality. I hope we all can learn from this. Mamoru Kodama is one of the Koi superstars in the Koi hobby. There is a lot of things to talk about him. Even though, I am not able to talk about everything he had done to Koi Hobby, but here are some. He is the founding chairman of Miyoshiike (Japan) & Kodama Koi Farm (USA). He is a reputable Koi dealer, Koi expert, and a well-known author of many Koi books like Kokugyo I, Kokugyo II, and Koishi. He is also a contributor to KOI USA magazine. Over the past 45 years, Mamoru San has established an excellent relationship with the Koi breeders, Koi dealers, and Koi hobbyists in Japan, the USA, and many parts of the World. His eye for selecting koi is appreciated by many koi hobbyists around the world, especially in the USA through Kodama Koi Farm. Together with his son, Taro Kodama, he established Kodama Koi Academy.
Manoru KodamaKodama Koi Academy is the first of its kind in the USA. In that class, he talks about the things he experienced and shares the knowledge he had gained through his 45 years of career, as a koi expert. Personally, I had the opportunity to attend the Kodama Koi Academy class when they came to Portland, Oregon. I learned a lot from Part I and Part II and enjoyed the class very much. I recommend his class to anyone who is interested in knowing more than just what is Nishikigoi and what are the Koi varieties.
