The textured cover is a calming shade of brown with the years foil-pressed in gold, and the book contains a dark brown bookmark for a complete look that works well without adding an additional cover.
Each page contains the same, easy-to-use 3.7 mm graph paper as the A6 Hobonichi Techo Original and A6 Hobonichi Techo Cousin, making it perfect for writing or drawing. The paper is a subtle cream color that’s easy on the eyes, and the printing is charcoal gray to allow handwriting to stand out from the page.
On each spread, the left page has the date and day of the week for all 5 years, with days of the week are written in Japanese.
Because each page contains a total of 5 days, a single day’s entry is compact enough to either fill with writing or write a single sentence and feel satisfied with the entry. It’s a perfect setup for those who are worried about being able to continue using a book for 5 years. (Holidays are not listed in the book.)
Available in (2) sizes: A6/A5
A5 has plenty of space to write all about your day. There’s also enough room to use thick pens, draw pictures, or fill the entry with whatever you want. (Holidays are not listed in the book.) This larger version works great as a shared diary among family members or a team notebook shared among several people at work.
*The 5-Year Techo does not fit in covers meant for standard one-year techo books.
