This plaid design pairs white, blue, yellow, and pink. The semitransparent spots where its colors intersect make for a complex color scheme anyone can enjoy.

Its charming colors and sense of transparency evoke the image of traditional bonbon candies, and the white background makes it not only sweet, but refreshing. The cover interior is off-white.

This cover is sure to cheer you up when you carry it around with you.

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. 

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 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.
