English version of the Hobonichi Techo

The Hobonichi Planner is the English version of the Japanese Hobonichi Techo. This year – once again under the direction of Sonya Park, owner of the select shop ARTS&SCIENCE – we’ve fine-tuned the planner, creating a simple, refined design that’s easy to use by anyone, anywhere in the world.


One-page-per-day format

Similar to its Japanese counterpart, the planner features a format with a page devoted to each day. There’s lots of open space to plan the day ahead and enjoy recording your memories and activities. Think of the pages as containers for random ideas, with a clear record of the date. Paste magazine clippings, ticket stubs and photos to make the planner something completely unique - your imagination is the limit.


180-degree lay-flat binding

First-time users are often surprised by the planner’s special stitch binding that allows it to lay completely flat when opened. Whereas readers of novels don’t need to open them a full 180 degrees, for example, this is a huge convenience for someone who carries their planner everywhere and may want to jot something down at any time.

Daily quotes for some great reading

From the heartfelt to the humorous to the whimsical, each spread of the planner features a quote specially selected from the planner’s parent site, Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shimbun.

Tomoe River paper

The planner pages are printed on the same paper used for the Japanese version. This thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong and resistant to bleeding – an ideal choice for a planner. It’s the reason why the 450-page Hobonichi Planner is so compact.
