Grant Fujita – “Carry on the spirit of Nishikigoi.”
With great sadness, we informed our fellow ZNA NorCal members and koi hobbyists around the nation of the passing of the club’s first president, Grant Fujita, on May 21, 2021.
Grant lived a full life, and lived his dream of raising koi, teaching, and sharing his koi knowledge with many koi hobbyists around the world.  He did what he loved to do, and his contributions to the koi hobby in California were exceptional.
We would like to share a story.  At the end of our first Young Koi Show, Fujita-san told us that when Dr. Kuroki Takeo, the founder of ZNA, went to California for the Nishikigoi mission, he gave Fujita-san a koi pin with the message, “Carry on the spirit of Nishikigoi.” Fujita-san said that it was time for him to pass this koi pin to Dinh, the founder of ZNA NorCal, with the same message from Dr. Kuroki.  It was an honor for Dinh to have it, and he later passed it on to the next president of ZNA NorCal, with the same message and a request to pass it on to the next president and following presidents, in the hopes that we could continue to carry on the spiritual message of Dr. Kuroki as well as Fujita-San.  Thank you, Fujita-San for this precious memento.
Please let us keep Fujita-San’s family in our prayers. May his soul rest in peace and rise in glory.
On behalf of ZNA NorCal Chapter
