Hobonichi Techo Planner 2024

From Friday, September 1st, 2023, the new 2024 version of our <Hobonichi Techo Planner> will be released on our ONLINE SELLER and selected brick-and-mortar shops.

This year marks the Hobonichi Techo Planner’s 12th year anniversary.

The Hobonichi Techo Planner is the English version of the “Hobonichi Techo.” It was established by Sonya Park, the creative director of Arts & Science, in 2013 and has continued to be the English staple every year. Park took two years of development and translated the qualities of the original Japanese version.
This year’s cover is made in a matte texture stamped with the kanji characters for Techo (meaning “planner” in Japanese) in a gold foil, representing an elegant and stylish aesthetic. The leather planner is admired by many international fans from various countries, regardless of their nationality.

Common attributes to the Japanese edition

Japanese paperback size in page-per-day format / English translation of “Hibi no Kotoba” (daily quotes) / Use of “Tomoe River” paper, known as the perfect match for planners / Made from sewn binding to allow a fully flat opening

Extra section

At the end of the planner, we have a section with extra information featuring different cultural themes from Japan and abroad.

Arts & Science Original Planner Cover

This year once again, Arts & Science has produced a special planner cover tailored to fit the Hobonichi Techo Planner. We have integrated the details of our representative wallet style, the “Jabara wallet” into a planner design. On the interior there is a pocket to hold your smartphone.
We have selected an Italian made vegetable tanned cow leather with natural grains in 2 colorways, Dark brown and Black. The more you use the cover the more the leather will shine and show its deep textures. Please enjoy the supple and beautiful ageing features of this cover.


For customers who purchase a Hobonichi Techo cover at one of our A&S brick-and-mortar shops, we offer our <Personalization Service>, where you may order and engrave your favorite initials with bare or foil stamps (charged service). Please ask the shop staff for details.
