The New HON Techo is a hardcover version of the Cousin with a Cover
New This Year! The Hobonichi Techo HON has a hardcover design already attached to the book. It’s designed to make you feel like you’re carrying around a favorite book, which you can pull out at any time to make notes no matter where you are. The book has A5 size pages with plenty of space to write and paste, and features a page per day, so the contents are the same as the Hobonichi Techo Cousin.
The Tiny Dragons design uses the same textured, shiny fabric used in neckties. The gloss and soft touch of the material make this series stand out.
Green seahorses are lined up on a navy background for this design. The charming seahorses that swim in the ocean have been created in detail through the weave of the necktie material. Hobonichi chose seahorses as a motif for this design as the year 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, and in Japan, the name “seahorse” literally translates to “child of a dragon.” Seahorses are known as a symbol of family happiness coming from their unique trait that the father gives birth. Among the seahorses you'll find those that are swimming by a coral or swimming as a family.
The contents are the same as the Hobonichi Techo Cousin book. The HON A5 size includes weekly pages to track a week in each two-page spread for easy planning and contains a handy time schedule.
The bookbinding on the HON has thread-stitch binding similar to the Hobonichi Techo Cousin, so it opens 180 degrees onto the table. It stays flat even if you don’t hold it down.

The book uses thin and light yet durable Tomoe River S paper. The paper has supported the Hobonichi Techo for over 20 years with its special characteristics, but it has undergone an overhaul starting with the 2024 edition techos. The paper is more resistant to bleed through, lighter despite being almost the same thickness, and has a crisper surface by adjusting the fibers of the paper.
As a special exclusive only for the HON, the HON techo comes with a pencil board. The board has 5mm grid lines printed across it. There are measurements printed along one side in 1mm increments, which allow for use as a ruler. This is also a new type of pencil board, as it has a pen holder attached to it.
