Cover and
Basic Features

Book cover

The front of the planner book is made of strong card stock with a soft ivory hue, and includes the label “HOBONICHI TECHO 2022 cousin” printed in gray letters. The April-start version also lists the label “spring.”

About the English-version Cousin

The name “HOBONICHI TECHO 2023 cousin” is printed in yellow letters.

A5 size is largest in lineup

The Cousin is the largest planner in the Hobonichi Techo lineup. At 148 mm x 210 mm (5.8" x 8.3"), the A5 size is twice the size of its A6 Original counterpart, so there’s plenty of room to use the Cousin for both business and pleasure.

Perfect planner paper

The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper — an ideal choice for a planner.

180-degree lay-flat binding

Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.

Rounded corners

The page corners are rounded to minimize creasing and damage to the edges when carried around or stored in a bag.

Serial number

Serial numbers on the inside back cover give each planner a unique identity and make your planner your very own special book.

Cousin-exclusive weekly page

The weekly page is a special section only available in the Cousin edition. It contains one week per two-page spread, with 24-hour timetables labeled 0:00 to 24:00.
