This version contains the Hobonichi Techo Original Book 2022 - April Start, which starts in April 2022, just in time for the beginning of the Japanese school year.

This small, unassuming town has a horizon that stretches as far as the eye can see. It depicts a sky deep in a sunset during that magical time when the sun is just about to disappear for the day. Lights are starting to blink on in preparation for the looming night ahead. And among all that, there’s a fox watching the beautiful view from up above a telephone box. The town sparkles like stained glass, the sky uses gradations of orange and purple, and the white moon is so small that it looks like it’s just floating in the sky. All the views are so beautiful.

Illustrator Hiroko Kubota painted this heart-warming artwork specially for the Hobonichi Techo cover. Even when your Techo is open, you’ll still feel the charm of the cover illustration because the cover design wraps onto the right inner pocket.

This original form of the Hobonichi Techo has been loved by many users since its introduction in 2002. Its daily pages offer plenty of space to fill despite the book’s compact A6 size. The graph paper offers an open layout for you to neatly lay out writings, clippings, and drawings. 


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 English.

The book contains several sections that are great for schedule management, such as a yearly calendar, monthly calendar, and yearly index page. The back of the book includes useful and informational pages, such as blank memo pages, an address book, a page for drawing out a custom graph, a list of useful links in Japanese, and more.
