Our puzzle boxes are each
individually handcrafted in the city of Hakone, Japan and imported by us
directly from the artists offering the best quality and pricing available. The
skills have been passed down through the generations since the Edo Period. Each
box comes with instructions on how to open the box, but give it a try first.
Traditional Himitsu Japanese puzzle boxes can be relatively simple or extremely challenging and nearly impossible for the owner to solve them, unless specific step by step directions have been followed for each specific box. Each style of Himitsu Baku Japanese puzzle box has its own unique order for unlocking it, and the box cannot be opened in any way unless the proper unlocking sequence has been completed. Most Himitsu Baku Japanese puzzle boxes come with original, numbered step by step instructions because without them, these boxes are difficult if not completely impossible to solve. These instructions, however, are typically illustrated and easy to follow even if they are written completely in Japanese.
