*The 5-Year techo does not fit in covers meant for standard one-year techo books.
By popular demand, we’ve added the A5 size “Large 5-Year-Techo” to our lineup this year. The book has pages dated across a 5-year span.
The textured cover is a classic shade of brown with the years foil-pressed in gold, and the book contains a dark brown bookmark for a complete look that works well without adding an additional cover.
Each page contains the same, easy-to-use 3.7 mm graph paper as the A5 Hobonichi Techo Cousin, making it perfect for writing or drawing. The paper is a subtle cream colour that’s easy on the eyes, and the printing is charcoal gray to allow handwriting to stand out from the page.
On each spread, the left page has the date and day of the week for all 5 years, with days of the week are written in Japanese.
Because this is the Large 5-Year Techo, each daily entry has plenty of space to write all about your day. There’s also enough room to use thick pens, draw pictures, or fill the entry with whatever you want. (Holidays are not listed in the book.)
This larger version works great as a shared diary among family members or a team notebook shared among several people at work.
The right page is a blank page for anything you’d like — continuing entries you couldn’t fit on the left, jotting notes you’d like to leave for the future, pasting items, and more.
The book has the same thread-stitch binding as a dictionary, allowing it to lay flat open for comfortable writing. The Tomoe River paper provides an especially smooth writing experience, with thin, light paper that allows the book to have 752 pages while staying compact.
The Hobonichi A6 5 Year Diary contains the following:
The start of the book contains a yearly calendar across the 5-year span. The back of the book contains useful pages such as “A Year Per Page” memo pages, “Gifts” for tracking gifts given and received, “Addresses” to list important contact information, “My Lists” for making a list of any theme of your choice, “Human History at a Glance” for informational reading material, and “Personal Notes” to record information about yourself. (These pages are in Japanese.)
