The daily pages include the number of the week on an annual basis. The formula we use begins counting with the first week in January that includes a Thursday.
At the top of each daily page are the international holidays for 30 countries and the corresponding country codes (Japan, for example, is JP.)
12:00 is the only time listed on the page, simply dividing each day into morning and afternoon. The latter section is slightly larger.
Each two-day spread features a quote from Sonya Park or one handpicked from the contents on Hobonichi’s website, translated into English.
While all the other daily pages are printed in charcoal gray, Sundays are printed in a striking red for quick reference and an attractive contrast.
The graph-paper design has been slightly enlarged from the Japanese version to 4 millimeters, to facilitate easy writing in any language.
Monthly tabs in charcoal gray or red (for Sundays) allow easy navigation to anywhere in the planner.
The daily pages also include a mini monthly calendar at the bottom of every two-page spread for quick reference. The dates of the pages being used are outlined.
The entire month of December 2013 has been included with two days per page so users can get a head start with their planner.
