Description

Not very big but a challenging 7 moves to open. To open a Japanese puzzle box one or more sliding pieces hidden within the patterns on the box must be moved.

This genuine Japanese secret Koyosegi box is the perfect gift box for that very special small gift. Imagine if someone has to find these moves before they can receive their gift? Perhaps you’re giving a very special piece of jewellery, perhaps a ring, maybe even a diamond? This will certainly prolong the suspense.

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 box will vary.   The box will be selected at random.  The photos show how they can differ from one to another.

    This puzzle took me less than a minute to solve. It is not worth it and very very small. This would be a puzzle that you would give to a 6-7 year old. After this puzzle i will not buy a puzzle off of this company again. It also took 4 week days to arrive with express post.

    NOT a good puzzle

    First puzzle box I’ve bought, smaller than I expected but I still loved it, very easy to solve, finished it in around 10 minutes.

    It was really pretty, though a bit smaller than i thought it would be, its pretty much the size of a matchbox. i also had part of the patterning chipped off on one square so that kinda sucked. I reckon its a bit overpriced $20 would pobably be a better value for money considering it is also a relativly easy puzzle and realistically only had about 10 minutes of playability.
