Himitsubako yosegi puzzle box of 10 movements to open also arrived from Hakone

As  I informed you previously, Hakone yosegizaiku himitsubako arrived this week and it was more difficult 21 movements to open.

This time, easier one of 10 movements, but the same size (15cm wideth), arrived! I waited for about 6 months for this to come in!!!

The surfaces of the box are covered with yosegi marquetry.


It looks almost the same as 21 times one, but the colors are slightly different.


Beautifully done.


When you slide 10 times, you can eventually open it.

The size is 15 x 9.8 x 6.5cm

The box is large enough to keep things in it.

For other puzzle boxes and for purchasing them, you can visit this page.
