Puzzle boxes

The “Himitsu-Bako (Personal Secret Box)” is a traditional Japanese puzzle box that was designed over 100 years ago in the Hakone region of Japan. The Hakone Mountains are noted for their great variety of trees. The Japanese Puzzle Boxes takes advantage of this wide variety of natural wood colors and textures to produce their elaborate geometric patterns.

Most Japanese Puzzle Boxes have a variety of difficulties ranging from 4 to 66 moves. From a puzzler’s point of view the 54-move box has the most interesting sequence of moves, even better than the 66.
