Welcome to the Imaginatorium Shop, now in our twelfth year!
From our base in Japan (here!), we send jigsaw puzzles anywhere in the world. Most of the hundreds of puzzles we have in stock feature oriental themes, but the high quality of Japanese-made puzzles (exquisite printing, really solid card stock, and clean cutting) also makes "reverse imports" highly desirable — puzzles of Peanuts, Disney, and lots of other Western characters popular in Japan. In general, if a puzzle is available in Japan, we can get it for you within a week or so - see the special orders page.

Latest Americana puzzles by Jane Wooster Scott
New Peanuts puzzles
The long-promised Tenyo catalog finally arrived in December, and while we still have a record number of puzzles we are waiting to get more stock of, the situation has generally improved.
I have also just reinstated the Epoch catalog. This has been updated, actually made simpler to use, and now includes both Epoch and Apollo brand puzzles.
For external reasons, I am hopelessly overstretched until about April, and so we have a big backlog of requests for missing pieces and so on. There are lots of new puzzles being issued too, so I hope over the coming weeks we will gradually catch up with everything.

As you can see in the pile of puzzles on the left, most of the writing on the box is in Japanese, so we also include printed details with each shipment.
