Hobonichi Techo A6 Original Book
(April Start)(Monday-Start Week/Sunday-Start Week)
The Original Hobonichi Techo is the same size as the English-version Hobonichi Planner -- a compact, portable size that's easy to pull out anytime and anywhere to jot down a quick note. The daily pages are great not only for writing down your plans for the day, but for doodling, pasting event tickets, and filling in pages with any whims that come to mind. The techo is easy to use, fun to write in, and great to have on hand at all times. Feel free to match your techo with any one of our colorful covers.

- 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.
