Tribox puzzle store online. The store operates in a residential apartment converted into an office, a photo studio, and a stockroom packed with puzzle merchandise. Pictured, Andreas Nortmann (too tall!), Roxanne, and Takafumi venture into the stock room search for hidden treasures.
Hanayama, the maker of the world's finest mass-produced brainteaser puzzles. Above, Oskar van Deventer and his wife discovered a sign that greeted his arrival outside the Hanayama office.
Puzzle Shop Torito, but the shop was scheduled to be closed for a few days. So we went sightseeing to the 2080-foot-high Tokyo SkyTree.
Hanayama Puzzles exhibited a fascinating display that showed how many of their most famous puzzles evolved before they went into production.
