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

As interest in the Japanese Puzzle Box spread and they started to become fashionable, the designs also became more decorative and complex. Finally, when they were slated for export, they became even more ornate and greater in size. Even though the secret boxes were simply meant to hold valuables and had little decoration in the beginning, the intrigue of this simple creation has led to a much cherished and respected art form
