Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group this puzzle is unlike other more traditional Japanese puzzle boxes. Once you know the solution you can open it in four moves. One of them is quite unconventional which makes the overall solution very interesting.
Karakuri Creation Group say this is one of the least difficult boxes in the series but warn “But still, people who know the secret boxes tend to lose the way to open.” So be careful not to underestimate this one. They are well known for their amazing woodwork and it is almost impossible to see the joins where one panel meets another on this box making the puzzle even harder to do.
We have sourced these boxes directly from Japan. The Hakone region has a long history of generations of master craftsmen making secret opening boxes for more than 100 years. But as the craftsman age and less people are taking on the training required to make these puzzle boxes we’re finding them very difficult to source so the ongoing stock of these boxes is uncertain.
This very special puzzle box is crafted in Oak.
Size outside: 42mm x 47mm x 60mm Space inside: 30mm x 26mm x 25mm Please note the size. This is quite a small box and not suitable to put something inside.
