2024/25 Hobonichi Techo April Start Book - A5 COUSIN (Japanese ver.)


This is an APRIL 2024 START (ends MARCH 2025) Planner 

About the Hobonichi Techo Cousin (This is the Japanese version).

The Hobonichi Techo Cousin is an A5 size planner with one page per day. This is the April-start version with pages spanning from April 2024 up to March 2025.

Not only is it useful for writing down your plans for the day, jotting down memos, doodling, pasting event tickets or photos, the spacious Cousin is easy to use as a techo to write down everything work-related, as a family notebook, tracking the growth of children and pasting in pictures to create a family album or sharing pages among family members. It’s also frequently used as a planner that is always kept on a desktop or table rather than carrying around.

After years of testing, the graph paper has been set to 3.7 mm for optimal writing comfort. The graph paper design allows users to write from any starting point on the page, and the lines have been printed in light colors so users can either customize it to their own layout or ignore it completely.

The Hobonichi Techo includes quotes specially chosen from its parent site, the Japanese web magazine Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun. Each daily page has a quote in Japanese.

The Cousin also has an exclusive section: the popular weekly pages track a week in each two-page spread for easy planning and contain a handy time schedule.
