Continuing the design series of the Techo cover lineup, this year features new patterns and materials in a range of cover styles.

New this year, Marine Stripes is perfect for nautical lovers. In addition to the classic white and blue stripe design, this cover comes with white circular charms embossed with the letter "H" and a hidden design on the inside pocket of a penguin on a skateboard, a second to the one on the front. The cover also has a water-repellant finish!

The Hobonichi Techo 2023 lineup includes a Deco Rush product with this original skateboarding penguin design on decorative tape. Simply pull a piece of this tape along your techo page to fill it with penguins in various poses.

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.
