Imaginatorium Shop

Jigsaw puzzles from Japan

Titles in stock:
Around 2500 by special order

Welcome to the Imaginatorium Shop, now in our fourteenth 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.

We have had a notification from the Post Office that some rates will rise on 1st June. (This is the first time for such a change since we started operating 14 years ago!)

This mostly applies to EMS charges, with a big rise in the minimum cost, but from about 1kg (one 1000 piece puzzle) adds 300-500 yen to the cost for any size of package. I will write more details as we sort them out.
