Niigata Secrets (DVD007)

Following the success of Koi Secrets Geoff now travels to the mountains of Northwest Japan, the spiritual home of koi, to bring you this fascinating programme.  He joins some of the areas finest breeders during the autumn harvest of their mudponds.  This unique access gives the viewer an unprecedented look at some truly beautiful fish and Geoff takes a closer look at their development, discussing with the breeders themselves their interpretation of koi.

Geoff takes a behind-the-scenes look at a number of facets of the Japanese koi culture never before seen.  All koi keepers need to know what to look for when buying a koi and throughout the programme the featured breeders openly share their thoughts as to what constitutes a good example.

Fantastic harvest footage combined with the breathtaking beauty of the sweeping Niigata landscapes.

Fundamentally important subjects such as SKIN QUALITY, BODY SHAPE & PATTERN POTENTIAL are covered in depth in an attempt to enable you to buy a better grade Koi for your money. Whether a relative newcomer to this absorbing hobby or a confirmed Koi nut, KOI SECRETS is a must have production for all those serious about learning more.

Many of the koi featured were bought by Geoff and his customers and imported last October or have been left to grow on in Japan for one more year.
