One week spread format

The Weeks is the weekly version of the Hobonichi Techo. The left page features all seven days of the week, while the right page contains convenient graph paper that makes it easy to draw out columns, jot things down, and rearrange your notes and plans.

Wallet Size

The Weeks is about the size of a ladies' wallet. It may look slim, but the surface area of a page is actually nearly the same as the A6 Planner and Original.

Thin and light

Even at 240 pages, the Weeks is incredibly compact. It's 10 mm thick and weighs under 140 g, making it effortless to keep on hand.

Room to write

The Weeks is filled with blank memo pages. There's one on each of the 57 weekly spreads, and the latter half of the book is filled with 76 more memo pages.

Tomoe River paper

The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong and resistant to bleeding – an ideal choice for a planner. It's the reason why the 450-page Hobonichi Techo Planner is so compact.

Weekly quotes

From the heartfelt to the humorous to the whimsical, each weekly spread features a quote specially selected from the planner’s parent site, Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shimbun. The quotes for the Weeks version are only in Japanese. If you would like the quotes in English, please buy the day-per-page A6-size Hobonichi Techo Planner.

Use as-is, or buy a cover

The 2017 Weeks lineup includes 27 cover designs, 19 of which are attached to the book. Even after you pick out your favorite design, there are empty Weeks zipper covers or passport-style covers that hold your book and let you change things up and have lots of pockets.

Hobonichi Japan Railway Map

Included with every Weeks is this sturdy, foldable map that covers the railway coverage of some of Japan's largest cities: Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sapporo, Sendai, Kamakura, and Hiroshima. The map is incredibly detailed, as Hobonichi revises it every year with the help of crowd-sourced checks by Hobonichi readers. The writing is all in Japanese.
