Shipping Rates
  • This set includes both a cover and the Techo A5 Planner for 2018 (January start). All writing in the Techo Cousin is in Japanese. The Black x Mint Blue cover features a black exterior and a mint blue interior. The black exterior matches well with anything, and when you open the book, you’ll be welcomed with a bright, cheerful blue. This color scheme fits well in both business and private settings. The Techo A5 Planner will ship for free with Express Post within Australia.

    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 calendar.

    The Hobonichi Techo A5 Cousin is the largest Hobonichi Techo planner offered. The planner features a format with a page devoted to each day giving you lots of open space to plan the day ahead and enjoy recording your memories and activities. It is printed on lightweight Tomoe River Paper which is ideal for fountain pen users and for keeping bulk to a minimum. It has been stitch bound to ensure it lays flat when open.

    It includes a weekly diary section only available in the Cousin edition, and contains one week per two-page spread, with timetables from 6:00 to 24:00. This is ideal for tracking projects and goals or for appointments.

    The Cousin has many great features such as a Yearly Calendar, Yearly Index, Monthly Calendar, Weekly Calendar and much more. The Daily page includes the Moon Phase, Japanese Lunisolar Calendar, To Do List, Daily Quotes (in Japanese) a Mini Calendar and coloured tabs.

    At the back of the book you will find a My 100 list for things to do and see over 2018, Informational Pages including favourite Japanese foods, a phrase book, emergency preparedness guide (Japanese), age table, conversion information and more.
