Not just a planner, the Jibun Techo is a customizable 3-in-1 system for chronicling your life from year to year. The name Jibun Techo comes from the Japanese words for "self" and "planner." It's meant to be a place for you to record the story of your daily life and—perhaps—discover things about yourself.

The Jibun Techo system consists of three separate booklets: an annual "Diary" booklet for planning out schedules and to-do lists, a "Life" booklet for recording more permanent information, and an "Idea" booklet for jotting down anything else that comes to mind. You can choose to use one, two, or all three booklets.

The Diary booklet includes:

  • Lightweight yet durable 52 gsm Kokuyo THIN PAPER, which is remarkably resistant to bleedthrough.
  • A 2-page spread for each week of the year. Each day has a vertical layout with hours marked from 0 to 24. Additional spaces let you record to-do lists, the weather, what you ate, and how you felt that day.
  • Monthly calendars for November 2019 through March 2021.
  • Additional sections, including a world time zone map, Japanese transit maps, yearly schedules, project management charts, and checklists for books, movies, promises, and recommendations.
  • Lay-flat binding.
  • Two ribbon bookmarks.

The Life booklet includes:

  • Kokuyo's premium MIO paper, which is fast drying, super smooth, and a joy to use with fountain, gel, and ballpoint pens.
  • Sections for information that can be carried over from year to year, including birthdays, anniversaries, life goals, family news, and more.
  • Sections for personal information like medical records and password hints. We do not recommend writing down any sensitive information in case the booklet is lost.

The Idea booklet includes:

  • Lightweight yet durable 52 gsm Kokuyo THIN PAPER, which is remarkably resistant to bleedthrough.
  • Graph paper sheet style for recording journal entries, lists, sketches, recipes, and more.
  • Boxes for use with Kokuyo's CamiApp app for Apple and Android devices. CamiApp lets you digitize your notes and store, organize, and share them using cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive.

This starter kit includes all three booklets in a soft clear cover lined with colored paper. The cover features a variety of pockets for holding cards, tickets, and other small papers. It also includes a pen loop.

The kit also includes a pencil board that doubles as an elastic band closure for the cover. The board slides under the page you're writing on to provide a firm, smooth writing surface. It is printed with a 5 mm grid that shows through the paper, helping you keep your lists and lines straight. The board also has a 19 cm ruler printed along one edge. When you're not using the planner, the board tucks into the cover's outside back pocket, where you can stretch the board's attached elastic band around the cover to keep the planner securely closed
