In order to reduce server traffic during our new lineup launch on the Hobonichi Techo Official Store, we’ll be splitting our release date for the Hobonichi Techo 2020 lineup into 3 days. (This only means sales will begin on one of the 3 days, not be limited to one of the days.
Here’s some more information and frequently asked questions about the launch dates.
Our launch dates for the Hobonichi Techo 2020 lineup will be September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Launch dates will vary by product.
Products available at Loft stores in Japan, the Tobichi shops, and other shops will all begin sales on September 1st. (This excludes products that aren’t available until October and onwards.)
We’ve put together a basic Q&A to help answer some questions about the new sales system.
Please see this page for a walkthrough:
The easiest way to buy products from different release dates is to wait until all the items are available on September 3rd and make your purchase then.
ExampleIf you want to buy Product A which is released on September 1st and Product B which is released on September 3rd, make your purchase after September 3rd, 11 AM Japan time.
Once in a while, an especially popular product may sell out on the day of release. If you would like to ensure your chances for buying an item, you can complete your purchase for available items on each day of release, then put the order on Shipping Hold. When placing additional orders, you will be able to continually merge to that original order during checkout. (Please note that orders placed separately and not merged together will each have their own shipping and handling fees.)
Please see this page for more information on Shipping Holds and Order Merging:
We generally have enough stock to cover demand. However, some particular products may far surpass expectations and sell out sooner than we had anticipated. We ask for your understanding if this happens.
*If a product sells out immediately, we aim to provide a restock whenever possible. You can see the latest restock status for a product on its product page.
*Other retailers such as Tobichi shops, Loft stores, etc. may have stock available for products sold out online. For stock status of these and other retailers, please contact the store directly.
