The Hobonichi Techo Cousin is twice the size of the A6 Hobonichi Techo Planner. The book’s big, spacious pages and page-per-day format provide a place to generously fill an entire year’s worth of spur-of-the-moment thoughts. The various calendars and pages are great not only for writing down your plans for the day, but for doodling, pasting event tickets, using as a normal notebook, and filling in pages with any whims that come to mind.
The Cousin is popular for use as a family notebook, tracking the growth of children and pasting in pictures to create a family album. It’s also frequently used as a planner that is always kept on a desktop or table rather than carrying around.
After years of testing, the graph paper has been set to 3.7 mm for optimal writing comfort. The graph paper design has also been printed in light colors so users can either customize it to their own layout or ignore it completely.
The Hobonichi Techo includes quotes specially chosen from its parent site, the Japanese web magazine Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun. Each daily page has a quote in Japanese.
The Cousin is very popular for its exclusive weekly calendars, and is easy to use, fun to write in, and great to have on hand.
the book comes with two free Hobonichi Store exclusives: a pair of “Meal Decider Dice” and a ballpoint pen.
