It is called hexagon puzzle in Japan.
I have one with an instruction paper.
According to the instruction,
it is certainly 6 pieces instant insanity.

This is very small instruction paper written in Japanes
And it's printed only 1 side.

Do you want me to translate?

I'm sorry for my bad translation.

Actually, the instruction has no description that the puzzle is for males.
According to my dictionary,
the word "men of today" means people who live today (including males and females).
I felt it strange during the translation.
But I finally followed the dictionary.

I've been told too many times this week I couldn't do something because I'm a woman. I guess I was super sensative when I read that. Don't worry.
