4 sun 9 Step Koyosegi money box

To open a Japanese puzzle box one or more sliding pieces hidden within the patterns on the box must be moved.   There are nine moves to open this box and discover the coin slot opening to insert your money.  Master the sliding moves and then keep you money in this money box;  it'll be safe for sure! 

Traditional Japanese secret opening boxes were first made in the Hakone region from about 1890's by master woodworker Ryugoro Okawa and are decorated with a veneer called yosegi zaiku marquetry. 

This very precise process starts with gluing different coloured woods together to form the desired pattern.  Then very thin sheets called zuku are shaved with a special plane and glued on to the puzzle.  Because each puzzle box is handmade in Japan the pattern on each one will be very similar but may vary slightly from the photo shown here. 

Size:  4 Sun (a traditional unit of measure to denote length)   Size outside: 112mm x 80mm x 52mm   Size inside: 82mm x 60mm x 36mm

Because each puzzle box is handmade in Japan the pattern on each one will be very similar but may vary slightly from the photo shown here.
The pattern on the other side of the box will be like this or very similar.
