    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.

    Imprinted year numbers may peel

    The numbers of the year are stamped onto the cover in gold leaf or other colors, so strong rubbing or everyday use may cause the numbers to peel off.

    Avoid exposing Clear Cover to cold temperatures

    The PVC plastic of the Clear Cover may lose elasticity and become difficult to put on when left in cold temperatures. If this happens, we recommend letting the product sit in a warm area before applying to your cover. Please be careful when handling your Cover on Cover in cold temperatures, as it becomes more susceptible to damages if dropped or handled roughly.

    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.

    Grid size is 3.54mm

    The grid size for the Weeks graph paper was originally listed as 3.45mm, but the actual grid size is 3.54mm. We apologize for the confusion, and the listing has been updated.

    Correction to free bonus Japan Railway Map

    Minami Urawa Station on the JR Keihin Tohoku Line was missing from the Tokyo section of the Japan Railway Map (which is included as a Hobonichi Store-exclusive bonus with Weeks books). The correct image is below. We apologize for the confusion.

    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.

    (Updated: 5/2/2016)

    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.
