About the Hobonichi Techo Cousin

The one-page-per-day A5 size Cousin in Japanese was created in response to customer requests for a Hobonichi Techo with more space to fill with writing and clippings. The various calendars and pages are great not only for writing down your plans for the day, but for doodling, pasting event tickets, using as a normal notebook for work or school, and filling in pages with any whims that come to mind. This is the Japanese version.

The Cousin is popular for use 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.

The book contains many useful calendars and schedule-tracking tools, such as the yearly calendar, monthly calendar, and yearly index page. 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.

The back of the book includes a wide variety of useful and informational pages, such as an address book and a page for drawing out a custom graph.
