The more you write in your techo, the more of your life it contains. We’ve created a cover that’s meant to last a long time and protect this precious book.
The brass button shining in the center of this cover is by button and jewelry specialty shop CO-, which handles everything from antiques to modern items. They’ve specially created these buttons for the Hobonichi Techo cover by reprinting antique buttons originally made in England.
Etched into the button is an old symbol of good luck, the honey bee, and a dainty flower.
▲This is how the button appears after continued usage. Each button will wear differently than the next.
The button starts out bright and shiny, and gradually darkens and dulls over time for that classic brass look you can enjoy while your cover matures alongside you.
There are two button snaps so the cover can accommodate your techo’s growing thickness if you paste in items like photographs and ticket stubs.
The pen hook is designed to hold a pen by its clip.
The herringbone material is made with wool tweed. The complex blue-gray color scheme gives the cover a high-end and eloquent feel.
Just as a honey bee seeks and collects nectar, so you should seek out all of life’s joys and gather them into your techo.A6 Planner Book in English

Select shop and brand Arts&Science owner Sonya Park directed the creation of this English-language Hobonichi Techo book, which has been refined and simplified to make it easy to use in all countries and languages. It still contains all the beloved features of the Original Japanese edition, such as the compact A6 size, one page devoted to each day, daily quotes, lay-flat binding, and more.
The graph paper in the English version is slightly enlarged to 4 mm to allow users to write comfortably in any language. Timelines are simplified to a single 12 to denote noon so users can completely customize it to their own schedule (or ignore it completely), and each day is also labeled with the number of the consecutive week that year, from 1 to 52.
The back of the book includes informational and useful pages such as My 100, Japanese Festivals, and Japanese Bentos.
The book has a chic, black textured cover subtly engraved with the Japanese characters for “techo” alongside the Arts&Science logo.
