Hobonichi Techo CousinMonthly Calendar

Monthly calendar

The monthly calendar is ideal for managing schedules. The graph paper design is lightly printed to make it easier to write in your plans and take notes in an even line. The blue gray and red print both allow for high visibility when writing in the calendar.

Weekly calendar

The Cousin contains weekly calendars that are useful for managing detailed schedules for the week. The 2018 edition book features a newly extended timeline, previously 6 AM to midnight but now 5 AM to 4 AM the following day. This allows any and all plans to be recorded in the calendar.

Monthly data

Each header includes the numerical month, the year, the Japanese era name, the traditional Japanese name of the month, and the English name of the month.

Daily boxes

Each box is lightly printed with a graph design to make it easy to fill in a full day’s worth of plans. You can also take full advantage of the graph design by drawing out sections to allocate plans or entries visually.

Week number

The monthly calendars include the number of the week. The formula we use begins counting with the first week in January that includes a Thursday.

Free space

Both the monthly and weekly calendars include free space for taking notes, making plans or decorating the calendars with stickers and washi tape.

Moon phase

The calendars include icons depicting new moons (●) and full moons (○). (While the moon phase is the same across the world, the exact dates the moon phases land on are listed in Japan time.)

Rokuyo (Traditional Japanese calendar)

The monthly calendar days are labeled with rokuyo, a cycle of six days said to predict good or bad fortune that day. The labels are commonly found on Japanese calendars and used to plan weddings and funerals.

Labeling 2019

The monthly pages for January through May of 2019 have the year in large numbers in the background to easily differentiate them from the 2018 pages.

Mini calendar

The weekly calendar has a mini calendar on the top left as an easy reference to the rest of the month. The week displayed on the current two-page spread is outlined.

Time table

The weekly calendar contains a timetable that begins at 5 AM and ends at 4 AM the next day. Each hour consists of two lines on the grid, making it easy to write in intervals of 30 minutes.
