<Karakuri-Puzzle Idea Contest from Karakuri Creation Group>
Odawara and Hakone area has had a history of Karakuri for more than 100 years.
Because of that, various works were made for many years, and have beenfavorites among many people.
It is this local industry, together with Karakuri Creation Group, which pays attention to the mechanisms in the puzzles.
This deepens the culture, as we try to plan the spread of interestin these puzzles, and compete in puzzle festivals.
