    Hobonichi Techo A6
    avec Original Book
    (Monday-Start Week, Single 6-Month Book)

    The avec A6 Original, a set of compact 6-month books, is now available for purchase separately as the July-December book.

    Everything is almost identical to its full-year counterpart, the A6 Original Hobonichi Techo, right down to the one-page-per-day layout, monthly calendars to cover the book’s six months, and bonus pages in the back.

    The book cover is a cool, ice blue material sturdy enough to work well without putting it into a cover.

    Because the 6-month avec is half the size of its full-year counterpart, it stays light and portable no matter how thick you fill its pages with taped-in notes, photos, stickers, receipts, and anything that strikes your fancy.

    Now is the perfect time for a test-drive for users who aren’t sure whether they want to commit to a Hobonichi Techo for a whole year, or whether they’d be able to make use of a planner.

    You can find more information on the avec book here.

    Also for sale is the larger avec A5 Cousin.

    Test fountain pens before regular use

    The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.

    Error in Japanese 2016 Hobonichi Techo copyright page

    The final page in the Japanese 2016 Hobonichi Techo, which includes
    copyright data and other information, lists an incorrect URL for the
    Japanese Hobonichi Techo Web Shop.


    We apologize for the oversight.

    Correction and Apology for Typographical Error in Solar Terms section

    One of the Japanese characters in the Solar Terms explanation is
    incorrect, as listed below.

    白露 (White Dew)
    Incorrect: 昔の人は、草木に降りた霜が (Long ago, people saw the frost on the plants...)
    Correct: 昔の人は、草木に降りた露が (Long ago, people saw the dew on the plants...)

    We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
