Hobonichi Techo Day-Free 2023 A5 Size

A5 Size / January Start

        The Day-Free Original Size is an A5 size monthly techo that is split into two main parts: monthly calendars and a graph-paper notebook. The book fits nicely into covers designed for the standard Hobonichi Techo Cousin.

        Because the book is half the size of the full-year Cousin, it’s also light and portable.

        The monthly calendar is the same calendar you’ll find in the standard Original book, designed with graph paper to make it easy to use. The 2023 edition will contain entries for December 2022 through March 2024.

        The blank graph paper notebook contains a total of 171 pages and is comprised of 3.7 mm squares. Each page is numbered.

        You can fill in as much as you want at a time without feeling constricted to dates. Keep a journal, draw a picture or graph, paste in ticket stubs, scribble on the pages, and fill the pages with capricious whims or meticulous plans — it’s all up to you.

        The Day-Free blank notebook section includes the Hobonichi Techo’s characteristic daily quotes in Japanese.

        The bottom right corner of each spread features a flipbook comic titled “One Pencil,” illustrated by 100%ORANGE.

        The Hobonichi Techo Day-Free has special stitch-binding that allows the book to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.

        Starting with the 2023 edition, we changed the packaging from plastic to paper. You can take a peek at the techo book from the window.

        You can also try out covers that are designed to give the Day-Free a snug fit: BS Lite (Black) and BS Lite (Blue).
