Jigsaw puzzles from Japan

Bargain sale!

Here's a collection of bargains, with at least 50% discount, plus the normal 10% discount (works out at 55% total discount). Some of these are lingering stock, some have been on worldwide voyages, and returned in battered boxes but in all cases the pieces should be in perfect condition — there's a note by the puzzle if the box is dented or squashed, and if you ask, we'll unwrap the shrink film and check inside the box. Yet other puzzles are special-order items that somehow got left behind...

Star journey
© Kagaya

Star journey (Kagaya) - 500 pieces

A portrayal of one of the best-known works of fantasy fiction by Miyazawa Kenji, Japan's much-loved poet and author of children's literature. The original title is Ginga tetsudô no yoru, probably best known in the West from the anime film "Night on the Galactic Railroad" (but there are many variations on this translation).

We see an earthbound, yet fantastic scene passing the train window, itself a reminder of a bygone age.

Wikipedia article on Miyazawa Kenji

Born in Saitama (just north of Tokyo) in 1968, Kagaya spent his childhood in wonderment of the stars in the sky, and never stopped painting them. He has had a successful career as an illustrator for astronomical books and magazines, and many of his works have been turned into jigsaw puzzles, among other products. Since 1996, he has worked exclusively in the digital medium, using a Macintosh. Perhaps that is why he does not appear to sign his pictures.

He goes by his family name; his given name appears to be Yutaka, but in English you will also find him called Joh Kagaya ( is the Chinese reading of his name).

Crickethawk Harbor (Wysocki) - 450 pieces

The American artist Charles Wysocki (1928-2002) was born in Detroit, but spent almost all his working life on the West Coast of the USA, in Los Angeles, and in Lake Arrowhead where he settled, just to the east.

His rather charming primitive style is instantly recognisable: full of warm wit, but rigidly refusing to comply with any conventional "rules" of perspective.

Zodiac

Zodiac (Mucha) - 300 pieces

The signs of the zodiac are arranged in a circle around the head of the model, who wears ornate headgear, and whose hair flows in stylised curves. This is the original version, a calendar for 1896 printed for the magazine La Plume.

Born in Moravia in 1860, Mucha moved to Paris where he became a leading figure in the art nouveau movement that heralded the turn of the 20th century. His name was originally Alfons, but in French and English it is often written Alphonse.
