Magazine HouseHobonichi Techo Official Guidebook 2018

This 160-page book is filled with Japanese-language articles about the Hobonichi Techo, including the product lineup, news, and the popular usage examples section.

The Hobonichi Techo has an official guidebook every year, but this year we’ve changed things up a little: The 2018 guidebook can be read from both directions. When you start from the front, you’ll see articles about how to use the techo. If you start from the back, you’ll see detailed information about the 2018 techo lineup.

The feature article is an interview of actress Yuriko Ishida, who’s been using the Hobonichi Techo for over 10 years. There are also interviews about what makes it fun to use the Hobonichi Techo with Ichiro Yatsui from the comedy duo Eleki Comic and voice actress Maaya Sakamoto, who’s started using the techo this year.

The usage example pages provide 46 examples from everyday users in and out of Japan, including members of a high school baseball club and a techo user from Shanghai.

The Hobonichi Techo 2018 Collection product catalog features all 79 covers, to make it easy to compare them at a glance. There are also detailed guides to the books, and a catalog of recommended stationery and tools. There’s even a manga by simico, a lesson on drawing cute things by the illustrator mizutama, a report on a techo meetup in the Philippines, and an interview with Hobonichi editor-in-chief Shigesato Itoi that you won’t want to miss.
