I am looking for info on a large set of Koi windsocks that I have. You posted a picture of Koi on the blowing in the wind challenge, yours entitled swimming upstream. Here is a picture of the set of 3 Koi and also the windsock that came with it. The Koi are 5m, 6m, and 7m in length. The windsock is also 7m long. This is a very large set of Koi. I haven't found anyone in our kite group who have even seen a set of Carp windsocks this large. Can you help me find a value on them? Looks like they were made by Fujisawa Co. and were a gift from Japan to a city in England.
Thanks for your help.

John,

Since this really isn't a photography question, I'll take you up on your offer and email the address you listed.

Hi John and .. John,

I don't know if this is the information you wanted, but this site lists koi nobori, similar to the ones in the photo, with prices. http://www.tokyoku.co.​jp/koi.html (external link)

Looking at it, for the same sized ones as you have, it would cost somewhere between 200,000 and 300,000 yen (without the pole).

Regards,
Sek.

Canon 5D, Canon Digital 'Kiss' (300D), EF 70-200/F4 IS L, EF 28-135/3.5 IS, EF 50/1.8, 18-55/3.5-5.6, EF 55-200/4.5-5.6 II, Olympus Pen-EE (S), Ricoh GR Digital

In Japan, I got your email yesterday and also sent you an email. I appreciate all the help from everyone. My large set of Koi is starting to look like I got a pretty good deal on them. I didn't mention, I also have the pole, pulleys, ropes and decorative top. I almost feel bad that I only paid $70 for the entire set. I said ALMOST! I checked out the site that SEK left, looks great but I'm guessing there isn't an English button to click. This will end up as a photo thread as I will post pictures of them flying off of my 19' delta. John

Thanks Sekabin for posting the website. I had no idea they were so expensive, did you? Anyway, here are a couple of English websites for those of you who might be interested in purchasing some. I can't vouch for any of these sites, I simply did a couple google searches. I think their prices are a bit high, so I'll continue to search for cheaper sites. I'll let you know if I find some.
