Hiroko Kubota

Tokyo Metronome

A5 Size (fits Cousin)

    Book (Cousin English Edition / English / January Start)

        The full moon fills the night sky. Tokyo Tower sparkles underneath the light of the moon as it stands with a metronome needle attached. The lights from surrounding buildings encircle the rhythmic tower, and in the distance is a bright blue line along the horizon. Could that be the sea?

        Look at the back of the techo and you’ll see a grand piano atop a building roof and animals sitting at the piano. Perhaps the deer and the bear are about to begin playing a two-person piano duet to the rhythm of the metronome.

        Illustrator Hiroko Kubota drew a sunset illustration for us with the Hobonichi Techo 2022 lineup. This year, Tokyo Metronome was chosen from the large collection of Kubota’s previous artwork for the way the image really stays with you. Kubota was kind enough to clean up the artwork a bit further to make it the best fit for the techo cover.

        This cover is so delightful you can practically hear the wind carry the distant sound of the deer and bear playing the piano to the steady rhythm of the metronome. The larger size of the Cousin cover allows you to fully enjoy the feel of the artwork.

        The charms on the ends of the bookmarks contain two different square designs to emulate the lights coming from the windows of surrounding buildings.

        You can also enjoy the appeal of the artwork when you open the techo as the night scene is also printed on the interior pocket.

        We hope this cover serves as a nice companion for many nights as you find yourself often gazing at its artwork.
