These stunning Japanese Puzzle Boxes are part wooden puzzle and part work of art. Each one has been handmade in Ashi Lake, Japan, by a village of artisans that has dedicated more than 300 years to mastering the art of Yosegi and using it to craft fine wood gifts.

Two incredible versions are available for those of all ages and skill levels. As each Japanese Puzzle Box is handmade, extremely limited quantities are available.

Yosegi Puzzle Box (10 Steps)
This beautiful Yosegi Puzzle Box is the same wooden puzzle that baffled and entertained guests of Joshua Jay’s Six Impossible Things. It is slightly smaller than the premium version. And, while it has just 10 steps, it still offers its own unique challenges. Everyone from beginners to expert puzzlers enjoys this wooden puzzle. With a stunning Yosegi inlay, it’s a gorgeous addition to any collection and can be used as a gift box or given as a unique gift itself.

Size: 5 x 3.5 x 2 inches

Premium Fuji Yosegi Puzzle Box (21 Steps)
The Premium Fuji Yosegi Puzzle Box is one of our most challenging puzzles for adults. It takes 21 steps to open and has taken some puzzlers hours to open. In addition to the Yosegi design, it is also adorned with an eye-catching inlay of Mount Fuji and the precious Tsubaki flower. Even after you’ve solved this art puzzle, it will live a long life in your collection as unique home decor and a great conversation piece.

Premium Size: 6 x 4 x 2.5 inches

Customer reviews for Japanese Puzzle Boxes



I have always wanted one of these and now I have one — the more complex, 21 move monster. The ingenuity of the design and quality of construction more than justify the price! If dazzlingly complex puzzles grab and hold your attention, this is a must. It comes with a printed solution — and that's a good thing!



What a beautiful box this is. I have the Fuji Yosegi Box. Being a woodworker myself I can deeply appreciate the craftsmanship that was put into this. I have not managed to open it yet but I have made it far enough to begin to see the internals and it looks like the workmanship on the inside is just as impressive. The box is pricey but a lot work went in to it and I am quite pleased with it.
