### Original sudoku puzzles from Miyuki Misawa

Folks, I found this new page from our lovely puzzle creator Ms. Misawa:

http://www7a.biglobe.ne.jp/~sumnumberplace/95546600/

The 3 puzzles are nice, but you (English speakers) probably need some translation about the rules... So I'll try to provide some with my (limited) knowledge of Japanese...

Puzzle 1: Spider (Kumo) Nest Number Place
Rules:
1. Fill in the numbers 1-40
2. The totals of each "spoke" of 5 cells are shown at the outside blocks
3. The numbers in each spoke must increase from inside to outside
4. Consecutive numbers cannot touch each other (spokewise or ringwise)

Puzzle 2: Flower Number Place
Rules:
1. Fill in 1-9 along the direction of each arrow
2. The central hexagon contains the totals of the outside petals
3. Numbers cannot duplicate in each petal

Puzzle 3: Pair Pair Colour Number Place
Rules:
1. Each row and column contains the numbers 1-9
2. Each pink region must contain 1 pair of numbers
Each cyan region must contain 2 pairs of numbers
Each yellow region must contain 3 pairs of numbers

Enjoy!

Here is the solution for the 3rd (copy & paste to Notepad to view):

382197645
835219764
794628531
927543816
178964352
659871423
263485179
416352987
541736298

I also have the solutions for puzzles 1 & 2 in text form, but I could only show them out in code box which would appear as spoilers... Anybody if in need could PM me for them...

These puzzles are not too difficult but very enjoyable to solve (especially #1)... Which is the case for all hand made puzzles from the Japanese puzzle masters...

I like the pair pair box variant and have made a new version of Miyuki Misawas example. I've deleted some constraints to make it a little bit more difficult.

The rules (and the solution) are the same.
