Tomodachi Club – Koi Farm

Please come and join us at Koi Acres on Sunday afternoon, June 22nd to enjoy a picnic get together with family and friends while learning about the beautiful Koi (carp) of Japan. Koi Acres, just 45 minutes outside of the Twin Cities in Scandia, MN, has been breeding and selling Koi for over a decade, and has trong connections with Niigata Prefecture, the heart of Japan’s Koi breeding culture.

The owner of Koi Acres, Mike Swanson, who apprenticed in Niigata for a number of years while studying Japan’s Koi culture and industry, will be on hand to lead a tour of Koi Acre’s facilities as well as answer questions on Koi. Children and adults will be able to feed the Koi, always a very fun and popular event.

Picnic Gathering: Starting when the Koi Tour ends, we plan on gathering for a picnic. Please pack a lunch for the day. There are a limited number of tables available, so please bring a sheet or blanket to have a picnic on the ground “hanami” style.

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about Koi, one of Japan’s most beautiful exports. Please join the picnic and we look forward to seeing you at the event!
