Japanese Kois

When we went to Bukidnon Deer Park and Wildlife Center, we were able to see these beautiful Japanese Kois. So before making a blog entry about them, I have search Mr. Google to check out what Koi’s are. And this is what I have learned: Koi or nishikigoi, are ornamental varities of domesticated common carp and are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens.

Japanese Koi is popular because they are very attractive and strong because they have the ability to survive even in freezing situations. Some Japanese Kois are worth thousands of dollars that is why there are so many thriving Koi breeders nowadays or they can try massage therapy program online to earn money too. Aside from that Japanese Kois were also believed to bring good luck or good fung shui in Chinese Culture.


My son sure loves to watch those stunning Japanese Kois. Watching the Kois struggle and wiggle in order to eat makes me feel carefree too. As for me, watching the Kois brought inner peace and makes me think if I could be like them, swimming around without thinking what tomorrow will bring.
