In the Hakone and Odawara district of Japan, these boxes are known as "Traditional Puzzle Boxes" or "Trick Boxes".  It is one of the woodworking skills handed down from older times.  The origin goes back to even the Meiji era (1868-).   The box itself requires patience to manufacture.   Despite its intellectually fascinating design and function, the trick box is anything but mechanical.  The feel of quality and the clever opening technique is the charm of the Japanese Puzzle Box.
The "sun" in the name is a Japanese form of measurement.  Each "sun" is approximately 3 centimetres in box length.  The more steps in the name - the harder it is to open the box.  The last part of the title is the name of the pattern displayed on the box.
Dimensions: Approx. 8.5 cm x 6.3 cm x 4.5 cm
Solution in included.  Comes in a pressboard gift box.
