  1. Since succumbing to the Hobonichi Cousin last year, I have been enjoying matching my fountain pen ink colour to that of the daily pages. The Japanese versions of this planner has lovely, slightly dusty, faded vintage colours which change for each month. The whole page is printed in that colour - grid, Japanese quote, date and day markets etc. So I thought it would be fun to write using a matching ink - a great excuse for exploring some of the glorious colours now available and a built in excuse for changing inks regularly. This idea was inspired by a blog I saw (sorry, can't remember who) wher
  2. I decided to try using a Hobonichi Techo Planner this year for my bullet journal. For that, I of course needed a notebook cover. After much scouring, I decided to try out the "Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover". I got that and the planner from JetPens (no affiliation, first time customer, very satisfied). Since the thing I wanted to know about this cover was nowhere to be found in any review, I decided to provide the information myself, along with first impressions - we'll have to wait until next year to see how it holds up and how well I like using it. (Large images so you can zo
  3. Just pre-ordered my 2019 Hobonichi Techo Cousin A5 planner. $51 with free shipping. https://andersonpens.com/stationery/hobonichi/ A little better than last year when ordering from Japan and paying $53.10. However, if you want Hobonichi accessories, you'll still need to order from Japan https://www.1101.com/store/techo/en/2019/all_about/cousin/ Jetpens has some accessories https://www.jetpens.com/search?q=hobonichi&v=2&pn=2
  4. I think I found the planner I will be using for 2017, maybe even the last half of 2016. The Hobonichi A5 Techo Cousin. Been using a combination of a Rhodia Meeting Book in Bullet Journal style for daily planning and At-A-Glance weekly planner for long term planning. While I like the versatility of the Bullet Journal, it gets tedious to always have to reinvent the wheel re-writing in the monthly and daily setups. The At-A-Glance is nice, but I would like my daily and long term planning in one place. The Hobonichi A5 Techo Cousin has it all, yearly, monthly, weekly and daily planning secti
  5. Hi FPNers - no affiliation here; just many Techos and Weeks over the years. The 5 yr planners just went on sale and covers are also available - it might be a good idea as it's about 800 pages in A6 size! http://www.1101.com/store/techo/en/2018/pc/detail_cover/fb18_jan.html http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2018/detail_images/fb18_cover/slide_04.jpg http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2018/detail_images/fb18_cover/slide_03.jpg http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2018/detail_images/fb18_cover/slide_02.jpg http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2018/detail_images/fb18_cover/slide_01.jpghttp://www.
  6. It is very odd how a Hobonichi can make you happy The Cousin A5 is definitaly a gorgeous size. There is a sticker on each planner with the text : 660,000 users worldwide. That counts for something ! We have a shelf full with 2018 Hobonichi Techo Planner and Techo Cousin and it is available from now on. Enjoy, Catherine https://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/hobonichi-notaboekjes-amp-papier

    Hobonichi Techo Cousin And Techo Planner 2018 !

    The Hobonichi Techo planner and Techo Cousin arrive in October. New in Europe are the Techo Cousin A5 planners. Although this planner is printed in the Japanese language it is easy to use by anyone in the world. Something new to enjoy, Catherine. http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/hobonichi-notaboekjes-amp-papier.
  8. While trying to go to the Hobonichi website, I typed in www.1101.com instead of clicking on the link www.1101.com/store that is in a previous thread. What I got instead of the of the Hobonichi website was a site in Japanese that didn't seem to have anything to do with Hobonichi. I hope i didn't open a redirected site that could have a virus or malware. Am I being worried about nothing?

    We are expecting the Hobonichi Techo Planner 2017 in the Sakura FP Gallery soon ! Order now, delivery from oct/nov. http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/detail/hobonichi-2017-techo-planner Sincerely, Catherine
  10. I don't know about you folks, but not many of the covers speak to me this year. Furthermore, I am interested in more options than $50, $100, to $400+. Anyway, whether you are using an old set-up or new one, please, by all means, share. I always just looked at the site and either decided or went without (bad idea). Thanks and cheers! Best ~ Jack
  11. I am assuming this should go in this section rather than inky thoughts. That said, being new, I encourage and will not be offended at all if this gets moved to inky thoughts. Okay, I just ordered my 2015 Hobonichi Planner and was wondering what ink and/or nib combos you find work best in any kind of accessory that uses TR paper? Is there an ink that you think works best? Is it wrong to assume F and/or EF nibs are the way to go given the size of the planner? By all means, this is not meant ONLY for ppl using Hobonichi products. I am as interested in any combo that works well with any othe
  12. Can anyone recommend a leather cover that would work for the A6 Hobonichi Techno Planner, other than the ones available directly from Hobonichi? The planner's measurements are listed as 4.1" x 5.8" (http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2015/planner/). I like the Gfeller covers but the measurements for an A6 cover for a Rhodia "webbie" are 3.5" x 5.5". (http://www.gfeller.us/noncart.html)
  13. Hi, fans of Hobonichi Techo planners and Tomoe River paper! The 2015 planner and new covers will be released soon and available on their webstore on September 1st. This is the present English webstore page. http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2014/planner/index.html Dunno if it'll change for the 2015 version. ------------ This was on their Facebook page.

  14. I'm not sure if you gentle-people in paper land knew this, but there is a version available with an April start and either Monday or Sunday as start of the week, too. Yes, they're expensive, but the TR paper and design is wonderful. Here's my sample order and links: 00020515 Rivet Bookmark Connesso - B (Black x Brown x Aqua) (for A6 Hobo x 1 / 756 yen / 756 yen 00021958 Original Hobonichi Techo Book (April start w/Mon) Japanese x 1 / 2160 yen / 2160 yen http://www.1101.com/store/techo/2015/planner/ Definitely check out Lindsay's great site: http://lindsaynelson.com/techo/ http://l
  15. Does anyone know, or has anyone tried, whether the Hobonichi Techo notebook covers fit other notebooks, for example Life Noble notebooks? I rather like the Harris Tweed cover, Hamish, but would prefer an undated notebook to the dated journals that Hobonichi have, since I don't expect to be writing every day.
  16. Hi FPN people, here's a little unboxing for the Hobo Spring 2015 edition, paired with One Star Leather's really beautiful cover in blue and brown Horween leather (embedded links): The last picture is slightly blue-enhanced. The bookmark is an option available from the Techo store. Pen loop and other add-ons are available from One Star, who is an incredible leather artisan. Enjoy!
  17. I ordered a custom Renaissance Art cover for my Hobonichi Techno planner. It's the small custom cover in wintergreen. The measurements I gave them were 5 7/8" high by 4 1/8" wide by 5/8" deep. It arrived safely in only about a week. I really like the leather and the simplicity: this is a book cover, period. No extra pockets, no closures, no bookmarks, no pen loops. It has a comfortable, rustic feel to it.The leather is beautiful and I'm sure will get better with age. Sorry about the lighting. The leather is a deep forest green that leans slightly toward yellow. It's dark but still obviously
  18. I mentioned in my Hobonichi unboxing post that I had found a way to carry around my 2015 Hobonichi with me and still “use” it even though it hasn’t started yet. This is that way. YellowPaperHouse (which I shall henceforth abbreviate as YPH) is a mother/daughter team that creates inserts for Midori-style notebooks and Filofaxes and sell them through Etsy. Everything is designed and made by them, so you are getting a totally original product. I found out about them I think from Instagram. Anyway, no affiliation, just to get that out of the way early on. As of right now they offer 26 d
  19. Following on from other awesome books and ideas..... I wanted some bookmarks on my onestarleather Hobonichi cover like my Design.Y journals have. Now the cover is complete! Works like a dream and very simple.
