Doraemon, a manga series by the celebrated manga artist Fujiko F. Fujio, is beloved in Japan and throughout the world. “I am Doraemon” portrays on its exterior Doraemon with a great smile on his face. When you open it up, a whimsical line drawing of Doraemon greets you to cheer you on throughout the day.
The cover is full of fun details; the background features the signature deep blue hue of Doraemon, his collar and tail pop with red, and the bell charms with yellow.
The artwork was custom oil-painted specifically for the Hobonichi Techo, and its dynamic strokes give off a feeling like Doraemon could spring into action at any moment.
The interior color is ivory to complement the blue base of the artwork. The two round charms on the bookmarks evoke the image of Doraemon’s spherical hands.
The High-quality polyester construction gives this cover its sturdy feel and subtle shine — it’s durable enough to last a long time, but light enough to carry with you everywhere.
The pen holders act as a hinge that keeps the cover safely shut when storing a pen in both of the holders. The cover contains two bookmarks, one with a rectangle charm and one with a triangle charm, so you can keep your place in two parts of the book, such as the monthly calendar and the daily page.
Each A6 Techo Cover comes with the English version of the A6 Techo Planner book.
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper. Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down. Serial numbers on the inside back cover give each planner a unique identity and make your planner your very own special book.
In addition to the Arts&Science logo, the Japanese characters for “techo” (which means “planner”) are stamped in gold on the chic, textured cover. The Hobonichi logo and the year appear on the spine for easy reference when storing the planner in a bookshelf.
The 105 x 148 mm A6 size is light and portable, making it easy to carry around and pull out anytime.
See the second tab for more information on the A6 Techo Planner.
The Hobonichi Teco A6 Planner contains the following:
Yearly Section -
Each 2-page spread contains 4 months, with a total of 12 months in the yearly index. The top of each monthly column includes 4 lines of space for note-taking.
The yearly index spans the following dates: January-start: December 2018 - March 2020 April-start: February 2019 - May 2020
Monthly Section -
The graph paper design is lightly printed to make it easier to write in your plans and take notes in an even line. The calendar is printed in charcoal gray and a striking red for a refreshing design.
Each header includes the year, numerical month, and the English name of the month.
Each box is lightly printed with a graph design to make it easy to fill in a full day’s worth of plans. You can also take full advantage of the graph design by drawing out sections to allocate plans or entries visually.
The monthly calendars include the number of the week. The formula we use begins counting with the first week in January that includes a Thursday.
The calendars include free space below and to the left for taking notes, making plans or decorating the calendars with stickers and washi tape.
Daily Section -
One day per page:
The planner features a format with a page devoted to each day. There’s lots of open space to plan the day ahead and enjoy recording your memories and activities. Think of the pages as containers for random ideas, with a clear record of the date. Paste magazine clippings, ticket stubs and photos to make the techo something completely unique – your imagination is the only limit.
The graph-paper design has been slightly enlarged from the Japanese version to 4 millimeters to facilitate easy writing in any language.
The daily pages include the number of the week. The formula we use begins with the first week in January that includes a Thursday.
Moon phase and day of the year:
An illustration of the current moon phase is paired with the day of the year. The new moon (●) and full moon (○) symbols are surrounded by stars at their peak. (While the moon phase is the same across the world, the exact dates the moon phases land on are listed in Japan time.)
The daily pages also have 12:00 noted to create a timeline, dinner icon for recording meals, a daily quote, 2 colour tab, mini calendar and Sundays highlighted in red.
Informational Pages -
The Hobonichi Techo also comes with a series of informational pages including: dot grid pages for memo's, important contacts pages, International size charts, conversion tables, country dialing codes, national holidays, personal notes and information on traditional Japanese household items, sweets and zodiac signs.
