Picture of Japanese Ring Puzzle

The Japanese Ring Puzzle first intrigued me years ago when I saw a video of a man that had been searching for the solution for ten years. It was interesting to see his thought process and quest to find the solution to a seemingly impossible puzzle.

The goal of the puzzle is to move the ring from the green side to the read.

Through all my research I was unable to locate the origin of this puzzle, but I decided I could make a higher quality puzzle than what is currently available for purchase.

Upon completion, this is definitely one of my favorite puzzles I've ever made.
