Hobonichi Techo A5 Cousin 2019 (January Start)
The one-page-per-day A5 size Cousin in Japanese language was created in response to customer requests for a Hobonichi Techo with more space to fill with writing and clippings. 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 for work or school, and filling in pages with any whims that come to mind.
The Cousin is the largest planner in the Hobonichi Techo lineup. At 148 mm x 210 mm (5.8" x 8.3"), the A5 size is twice the size of its A6 Original counterpart, so there’s plenty of room to use the Cousin for both business and pleasure. The Cousin is popular for use as a family notebook, tracking the growth of children and pasting in pictures to create a family album or sharing pages among family members. It’s also frequently used as a planner that is always kept on a desktop or table rather than carrying around.
The book contains many useful calendars and schedule-tracking tools, such as the yearly calendar, monthly calendar, and yearly index page. The Cousin also has an exclusive section: the popular weekly pages track a week in each two-page spread for easy planning and contain a handy time schedule.
Perfect planner paper
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper — an ideal choice for a planner.
180-degree lay-flat binding
Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.
The back of the book includes a wide variety of useful and informational pages, such as an address book and a page for drawing out a custom graph.
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.
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 Cousin is only available with a Monday-start week for the monthly calendar.
