A koi carp from the lagoons of Yakushima.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its exceptional fauna and flora, Yakushima is a mountainous island dotted with dense forests, straight from prehistory, and a beautiful lagoon. A guaranteed change of scenery, a tenfold increase in inspiration, and thus was born the Turquoise koinobori. For those who follow Japanese culture very closely, Yakushima inspired Hayao Miyazaki in the late 1990s for his famous animated film "Princess Mononoke". To return to Turquoise Koinobori, it will marry many koinobori including Rainbow, Tender Green and Mandarin.
