Following the cancellation of both the Wakagoi and International Junior Koi Show’s in Niigata due to the Corona virus, the Niigata District of the All Japan Nishikigoi Promotion Association has organised the ‘International Nishikigoi Web GP’.

The organisers state; ‘The current Corona virus situation has of course had a huge impact on our koi industry, and sadly this has resulted in us recently deciding to cancel several koi shows and other events.

Therefore the Niigata District Shinkokai has decided to host a Nishikigoi popularity vote!

This competition is open to entry for koi from all over the world which were originally produced by a Shinkokai member in Japan, and everyone around the world is encouraged to take part in the voting.

We are looking forward to your participation!!’

Registration of entries by Shinkokai members was completed on Sunday 26th April, and voting is now open for participation of Koi hobbyists and professionals around the world and will run until Thursday May 7th 17:00 with results due to be announced the following day at 10am (all times are Japan Standard Time).
