    Please Read Before You Buy

    In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.

    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.

    We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
