Hobonichi 5-Year Techo Gift Set Bloom (2022-2026)A6 Size / Japanese / 2022-2026 / Five Years in One Book

    We’ve put together a perfect gift set for the Hobonichi 5-Year techo that comes with a specially made embroidered cover, pencil board, and a small card, all neatly arranged in a beautiful box. Ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima drew the illustration for the cover and the pencil board.

    When you untie the light blue ribbon and open the silver-foil-pressed box, a charming pattern of pansy and bumble bee is revealed. Inside the box is another yellow box that contains the regular sized Hobonichi 5-Year Techo (2022-2026), its cover, a pencil board, and a small card.

    We’ve made an embroidered linen cover with a pattern of birds and flowers for this Hobonichi 5-Year Techo Gift Set. Look closely and you’ll see the unique expressions of each of the three birds and pink flower petals, depicted with 8 mellow-colored threads.

    The cover comes with a bookmark that has a tassel at the end. A signature of Makoto Kagoshima and the logo of Hobonichi is printed in the interior of the cover.

    The pen hook on the inside right of the cover can hold a pen by its clip.

    The surface of the pencil board is printed with the same pansy and bumble bee pattern seen in the box interior. The back side is plain and cream-colored with Makoto Kagoshima’s signature on the bottom left.

    The small white card is designed to evoke the shape of a leaf or a flower petal. You can use it any way you like, such as a message card or bookmark. It is silver-foil-pressed with the pattern of birds and flowers identical to the box’s lid.

    You can use the box to keep the Hobonichi 5-Year Techo, or use it as a kind of treasure box for your most precious trinkets and stationery. We hope that it’ll collect wonderful memories along with the Hobonichi 5-Year Techo.

    We’ve put together this set with a wish that its recipient will enjoy a fruitful 5 years. It’s not just a great gift for friends, but also for yourself.

    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.

    Actual specifications may vary from listing

    Each item is individually assembled and sewn by hand by a factory worker. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

    Threads are napped and uneven

    Due to the nature of this material, threads may contain uneven thickness or naps (knots and lumps in the material).

    Avoid pulling the bookmark charm or tassel

    Please use caution and avoid pulling the charm or tassel on the end of the bookmarks, as it may cause them to rip off.

    The cover does not shut tightly

    The cover does not shut tightly while it is new, but it will wear in over time.

    About the paper

    The thin, smooth Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. 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. We also recommend the use of blotting paper and writing with a pencil board underneath the page.

    Important information about cover material and foil stamping

    The cover uses PVC materials that may be warped, stained, or damaged by transfers if kept in contact with printed matter or vinyl material for a prolonged period of time. The PVC also becomes fragile when stored in cold temperatures or unheated rooms during the winter. When cold, the material may crack when dropped. In addition, the foil stamping on the cover may begin to peel over continued use.

    No holiday labels

    This book does not contain labels for holidays.

    Avoid storing in hot and humid places

    Please avoid storing your product in hot, humid places or placing it atop other objects for long periods of time as this may result in lower quality and color stains.
