This box size is my original size (4.2 sun) . it's Larger than 4 sun (12 cm/4.5 inch) and smaller than 5 sun (15 cm/6 inch). This is the size that I think it's good for a Himitsu-bako structure. This puzzle box is opened by 14 steps (4 panels type). The design is Sliced Zebra wood (top and bottom panels) and Ichimatsu wood mosaic (side panels). The Japanese puzzle box is made from only wood.

"The Japanese puzzle box (Himitsu-bako) is made only of wood, environmentally-friendly products. This a one of traditional art work of Japan. The origin goes back even to the Edo and Meiji era (1800s) in Japan. It has been handed down by the very few craftsmen. I am crafting full-time these puzzle boxes by myself. I had training for 10 years and I'm crafting these Japanese puzzle boxes and Yosegi-zaiku for over 20 years. All items are made in my workshop and shipped to you directly. I will promise that all boxes are of good quality. My Puzzle boxes will move smoothly, because I will check and test all puzzle boxes before shipping. If you have a question, Please feel free to ask me anything. Thank you!. Hiroyuki Oka"
