What is the Hobonichi Techo Weeks Mega?
The Hobonichi Techo Weeks Mega is a compact and portable weekly planner with plenty of memo pages for you to fill to your heart’s content. Carry it anywhere and pull it out on a whim to jot down those random flashes of inspiration that can come at any time and anything else you don’t want to forget. We’ve put together this video based on the “Techo on the Go” slogan to demonstrate the charm of the Weeks Mega.
The standard Hobonichi Techo Weeks has 69 memo pages in the back; the Weeks Mega has 213! With that much space, you can fill in the pages with whatever significant or insignificant content you’d like without worrying about saving pages for later in the year. Paste things into the pages; use them for whatever purpose randomly comes to mind. It’s perfect for people who’d like a book they can use at home as well as at work.
Aside from having three times the memo pages, the Weeks Mega is identical to a standard Hobonichi Techo Weeks. The Color series Weeks Mega is about 13 mm thick, while the standard Color series Weeks is 9 mm — while there are 3 times the number of memo pages, but the book is only 1.4 times thicker. Hobonichi Techo covers designed for the standard Weeks can be used with the Weeks Mega, including Weeks covers from years before the Weeks Mega was introduced.

The Weeks Mega now comes in two styles, the Sneaker series and the Colors series, giving users more options to choose from. Here’s a look at each series.
The all-new Sneaker series is a Weeks Mega exclusive style that emphasizes the freedom users feel when they can pull the Weeks Mega out at any time for any reason. The main feature is the softcover binding. The book is flexible and can be clutched in one hand, making it easier to turn the pages and keep it in a pocket for immediate access. The matte cover comes in subdued colors, with the “MEGA” logo debossed on the front cover.
Both the “MEGA” logo on the front cover and the “HOBONICHI” logo on the back are hand-lettered to accentuate the Sneaker’s rough, everyday feel.
The Sneaker series comes in matte black and matte blue.
The Colors series introduces a new set of covers each year. The series is popular for the versatility and comfort of its solid-color designs. Users can pick out a favorite color and carry it everywhere they go.
The Colors series has cloth hardcover binding that’s smooth and pleasant to the touch. It’s also compatible with the decorative Clear Covers （Hide and Seek in the Field and Quiet Harbor）designed for the Weeks and available on the Hobonichi Techo Official Store. These Clear Covers can instantly change the look of your cover with their attractive designs.
The Weeks Mega Sneaker series and Colors series vary in size, materials, price, and Clear Cover compatibility. Please see the chart below to compare the features of the two series.
