The popular Hobonichi Techo cover Safari (Navy) from the 2017 edition made a comeback with alterations in the details, such as the fabric used and the pockets on the interior. The supple navy twill is accented and reinforced by brown leather. This leather-trimmed trifold cover is made of a navy twill material. You can hold the cover sideways like a clutch bag. The smile pocket on the interior, pen hook, and bookmark charms also uses cow leather. Inside the flap are two vertical pockets that can hold cards and other small objects. In front of that is another small vertical pocket that is trimmed.
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 graph paper in the English version is slightly enlarged to 4 mm to allow users to write comfortably in any language. Timelines are simplified to a single 12 to denote noon so users can completely customize it to their own schedule (or ignore it completely), and each day is also labeled with the number of the consecutive week that year, from 1 to 52.
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.
