5 Sun 7 Step Koyosegi

5 Sun 7 Step Koyosegi Japanese puzzle boxes are handmade with superb quality.  There is only one combination to open each box. Sides of the box move or slide to allow other pieces to move as well.  These actions, performed in the right combination will open the lid.  These beautiful boxes are perfect for gifts or wonderful as a conversation piece or keepsake. The “sun” in the name is a Japanese form of measurement.  Each “sun” is approx. 1.1 inches 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. This 5 sun box takes 7 steps to open and comes in a quality pressboard gift box.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
