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.
The intrigue of the Japanese Puzzle Box stems from the fact that there is no lid, no closures and no seemingly visible way to open the box. Rather, one must slide certain pieces of the box in an exact sequence to reveal a secret opening. The number and series of required moves can be as small as two steps to well over one hundred. Nowadays, it is easy to find Japanese Puzzle Boxes in a number of designs, colors and sizes that will open with an average of seven to ten steps. However, boxes with a higher number of steps are also available. The more complex the design and number of steps, the higher the price tag will be.
