This Weeks book has the full year calendar for 2022 printed right on the cover. The numbers, days of the week, and lines surrounding the calendars are written by Ryota Kishida, the younger brother of writer Nami Kishida. This version begins in April 2022, just in time for the beginning of the Japanese school year.

Ryota wrote these for this cover because he had also written the page numbers by hand for Nami’s book, I Love My Family for Who They Are. Ryota, who has Down Syndrome, was unable to write, but practiced until he could write the page numbers for her book. Shigesato Itoi loved his handwriting so much that he asked Ryota to contribute his writing to this 365 Days Weeks cover as well. The back cover of 365 Days is printed with Ryota’s signature, an R.

The cover has been constructed as a light, hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends. The cover and spine are foil-pressed in silver with the year 2022, which has also been handwritten by Ryota. The charm to his handwriting comes from the care and effort he puts into it.

This techo includes a special sticker sheet with Ryota Nishida’s handwriting.

This weekly-edition Hobonichi Techo is a compact book that’s easy to carry everywhere. The book is slim and roughly the size of a long wallet, making it easy to fit into a bag or suit pocket. The main layout of the book consists of a weekly calendar on the left page and blank graph paper on the right page. Each weekly spread also contains the characteristic Hobonichi quote in Japanese on the bottom of the page. Although slim at first glance, the book holds 71 graph-ruled memo pages for note-taking at the end of the book. The Weeks is available with a variety of different cover designs on the book itself and does not require an additional cover purchased separately.

When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
