4D Cityscape Osaka Japan Time Puzzle
This award-winning puzzle recreates Osaka's famous skyline, not only in three dimensions using scale-model buildings, but also along the fourth dimension of time, spanning over 100 years of architectural history. The puzzle includes 91 plastic building replicas that depict the city as it appeared as far back as 1903 through to 2012 with the addition of the Nakanoshima Festival Tower, and into the future to 2018 with the completion of the Nakanoshima West Tower. The puzzle includes such iconic structures as the Osaka Castle, Shitennoji Temple, and the Umeda Building. The buildings fit into pre-cut holes in a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle that form the city's street layout. The product includes a Time Poster that directs you through time as you rebuild Osaka's skyline history. Ages 8+. Assembled dimensions: 19 Inch L x 19 Inch W x 5 Inch H.
