Hobonichi Techo Cousin Book
(January Start)A5 Size (Monday-Start Week Only)
This book is the January-start version. Please see here for the April-start version.
The Hobonichi Techo Cousin is twice the size of the A6 Hobonichi Techo Planner. The book’s big, spacious pages and page-per-day format provide a place to generously fill an entire year’s worth of spur-of-the-moment thoughts. The various calendars and pages are great not only for writing down your plans for the day, but for doodling, pasting event tickets, using as a normal notebook, and filling in pages with any whims that come to mind.
The Cousin is popular for use as a family notebook, tracking the growth of children and pasting in pictures to create a family album. It’s also frequently used as a planner that is always kept on a desktop or table rather than carrying around.
After years of testing, the graph paper has been set to 3.7 mm for optimal writing comfort. The graph paper design has also been printed in light colors so users can either customize it to their own layout or ignore it completely.
The Hobonichi Techo includes quotes specially chosen from its parent site, the Japanese web magazine Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun. Each daily page has a quote in Japanese.
The Cousin is very popular for its exclusive weekly calendars, and is easy to use, fun to write in, and great to have on hand. Feel free to customize your techo with any one of our colorful covers.

When you purchase the planner in the online Hobonichi Store, the book comes with two free Hobonichi Store exclusives: a pair of “Meal Decider Dice” and a ballpoint pen.

- 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.
