The techo includes 8 blank pages in the back for capturing random thoughts, sketching or storing items of interest that aren't time-sensitive. These pages are made with the same 3.7 millimeter graph paper design used in the Daily Pages/Monthly Header.
This page is useful for remembering anniversaries and other important highlights. It also makes a good table of contents for your techo when reading back through the book later.
The Favorites page is a great place to list rankings for movies, books, music, restaurants, plays, games and much more – on a sliding scale of 5 stars.
The graph paper is convenient for recording your daily weight or other changes when you have a certain target in mind. The horizontal X-axis along the bottom contains 31 boxes to easily cover a one-month span. You can also turn the page 90 degrees to use the graph in a different direction.
The techo includes two timetables for writing in a recurring hourly schedule for each day of the week. These are useful, say, for filling in the broadcast times of favorite television shows, or splitting up house chores.
Record the presents you've given or received in the Gifts page so you don't forget who gave what to who and when. This is also helpful for thank-you cards. There are spaces for 20 gifts.

Solar terms (Japanese)
This section explains the names and origins of solar terms that make up the 24 points in traditional East Asian lunisolar calendars. These include well-known days such as the start of spring and the winter solstice, but also cover less familiar days such as "full grain" and "cold dew."
Emergency preparedness (Japanese)
This page contains a checklist of items to have ready in case of an emergency. There is also a space to list nearby evacuation zones (common in Japan), emergency contact information and topics discussed between family and friends.
Conversion table (Japanese)
This chart features conversions between units of measurement for easy reference and calculation.
Useful links (Japanese)
Useful sites for daily life. Also contains links to quotes from the Hobonichi Techo in previous years, as well as links to the original Japanese articles.
The Remember This section is for keeping information that's easy to forget, but that you'd like to reference on a regular basis.
Addresses (for 4 people)
The address book allows you to write in the contact information for up to 4 people, such as family and close friends.
This table lists the year people were born, and their age in 2016 at a quick glance. The number to the left of the year is the corresponding year based on the traditional Japanese Imperial Era calendar, and to the right of their age is the character for the Chinese Zodiac.
