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 English 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.

White Line, Smooth, Sneaker, and Paper type cover designs are slightly bendable and mold nicely to the shape of a hand. Color, Leather, and Special Artist Collaboration type cover designs are made of stiff paperboard material and have less of a bend, making them easier to clip open and lay flat. Some planners such as the Leather, Smooth, and PVC weeks styles are made to be used without a protective clear cover. For extra protection with these styles, a fabric cover or pouch is suggested.

About Hobonichi x Keiko Shibata: Hobonichi loved how humorous Keiko Shibata’s artworks were and had always hoped to collaborate with her. For this 2024 edition, Hobonichi selected artwork to share from Keiko Shibata’s past. Shibata's “wind” series of artworks, many of which were displayed at the exhibition held at the Hobonichi’s Tobichi store, expresses various kinds of winds, such as the fresh breeze, gusty wind, and gentle wind. They decided to use artworks with bright, spring-like tones for this “spring” edition. Hobonichi hopes you can always have these humorous and story-telling artworks with you — with the facial expressions changing in the wind and the flow of the animals’ hair — integrated with your techo.
