|Article number:||[JPN] 5-Year Techo A5 (2023-2027)|
The 5-Year Techo features a page design that makes it easy to keep up with for all five years. Each daily page lines up the same date across five years for users to write each entry side by side, making the book more exciting as each year passes. The book includes all the benefits and features of the standard Hobonichi Techo, such as the grid paper layout on the Tomoe River paper, lay-flat binding for easy writing, and daily quotes. The book cover is made of slightly textured PVC and is reminiscent of some softcover dictionaries and bibles. The book comes in two sizes: the A6 “Hobonichi 5-Year Techo” and the A5 “Large Hobonichi 5-Year Techo.” The cover of the book is a few millimeters larger than the paper size.
A5 size: cover size: 156 x 214 mm (6.2" x 8.4"); pages: 752; width: 25 mm (1.0"); weight: 680 g (24 oz)
The soft, slightly textured brown cover rests nicely in your hands, and the cover material is reminiscent of some softcover dictionaries and bibles. The name “Hobonichi 5-Year Techo” and the years are foil-pressed on the cover in gold.
*The 5-Year Techo has its own specially designed covers and is not compatible with standard single-year Hobonichi Techo covers.
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. The paper is a cream color that’s easy on the eyes.
Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.
The Hobonichi 5-Year Techo is somewhat thick with many pages, so the book features round back binding to provide integrity to the spine and prevent it from breaking, even over many years of use. There's also an indent that makes the pages easy to turn. The corners of the pages are rounded, which helps prevent them from folding over when the book is in your bag.
Attached to the book is a dark brown bookmark for keeping your place.
The endpaper contains thick beige paper with a nice texture.
