Behold the English version of the Hobonichi Techo, one of Japan's best-selling daily planners! "Techo" comes from the Japanese words for "hand" and "notebook", and it means "planner". More than just an agenda, it is a convenient, pocket-sized companion to your daily life. Over the years, the Hobonichi Techo has become known for its functional design and thoughtful details. This English version features:
- Tomoe River paper: This exquisite paper is ultra-thin, making it lightweight and easy to carry. Despite its thinness, the paper is remarkably resistant to ink bleedthrough.
- Grid pattern: The graph sheet style keeps notes organized and lets you design various layouts for each page.
- Page-per-day format: Each day gets a full page—plenty of space for planning and memory-keeping. The date range for these daily pages is January 1st, 2017 to December 31st, 2017.
- Monthly calendars: In this section at the front of the planner, each month is a two-page spread. The date range for this section is December 2016 to March 2018.
- Quotations: Entertaining, inspirational quotes printed on every other page offer bits of wisdom.
- Reference pages: Measurement tables, a printed ruler, guides to Japanese culture, and other information is conveniently available.
- Stitch binding: With this lay-flat binding, writing in your Techo is easy and comfortable.
This planner comes with a stylish cover which features:
- High-quality construction: It is made of durable polyester with a subtle sheen.
- Storage slots: Store cards, sticky notes, metro passes, and other everyday essentials.
- Ribbon bookmarks: Two ribbons mark your place, and their stitched end tabs are a nice design touch.
- Pen loops: Each loop can hold one pen, or, a pen can be inserted into both pen loops to keep the cover closed.
This Royal Blue cover has a vibrant blue exterior and subtle ivory interior.
The Hobonichi Planner is designed as a blank canvas for documenting the small moments of everyday life. Use it as a diary, scrapbook, photo album, sketchbook, or simply as a place to record your thoughts!
Note: The manufacturer has notified us of these errors in the "A Guide to Japanese Tea" section:
- In step 4, this is incorrect: "Drink the tea in three sips, removing the chawan from your mouth, but without putting it down." The correct wording is "Drink the tea sip by sip, without putting the chawan down."
- For the term Wa Kei Sei Jaku, this is incorrect: "和敬静寂". The correct characters are "和敬清寂".
