||Intention of inviting people for ownership of Nishikigoi at Nishikigoi
|The city of Ojiya opened Ojiya Nishikigoi no Sato in October, 1989, with
the intention of the development of local industry and the advancement
of the tourist industry. The city established the Nishikigoi ownership
system so that many tourists can become the owners of Ojiya-bred Nishikigoi
for display at our facility, where our staff will take good care of Nishikigoi
on behalf of their owners. Currently there are approximately 100 such koi
in our garden pond.
Ojiya-shi Industrial Development Center is in charge of the sales and care
of the Nishikigoi in cooperation with the city of Ojiya and the Ojiya Nishikigoi
Farming Cooperation. The purchased Nishikigoi under this system will be
raised and displayed in our facility for free of charge.
||Application guidelines for Nishikigoi ownership

All the Nishikigoi for sale are bred with the utmost care by the members

Varieties of Nishikigoi for sale
Ojiya-shi Industrial Development Center will select each owner’s koi between
their first and second desired varieties. We will do our utmost to comply
with applicant’s first wish, but please understand that there might be
an uncommon occurrence that we will only be able to offer an applicant’s
second favorite kind of Nishikigoi. Please note again that Nishikigoi has
a unique marking pattern.
We will select Nishikigoi among these three main varieties.
*We might unwillingly select one other than these three types. Such an
incident seldom occurs.
Sights of Nishikigoi breeding
According to the application period for purchase or on account of the prevention
of epidemics, the sale of Nishikigoi may be suspended briefly. We may also
ask the owners of Nishikigoi to take back their Nishikigoi when we decide
their koi’s admiration value has deteriorated due to its aging.
Compensation of Nishikigoi on display
If an owner’s koi dies within one year after its purchase, we will compensate
the koi with another koi of the same variety and equivalence, except the
accident by the third party and extraordinary natural occurrences.
If an owner’s koi dies after one year of its purchase, please understand
that ownership of the koi and above-mentioned perks will be invalid.
Carrying out of Nishikigoi
As a general rule we are in charge of owners’ Nishikigoi for one year after
their purchase. After that period of time, owners will be solely responsible
for their Nishikigoi. Please contact us one week in advance if you wish
to do so. Once owner’s Nishikigoi has been carried out, ownership of the
koi and perks will become invalid.

fee to Nishikigoi no Sato.

in Ojiya City.
