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 Cats & Me design uses the same textured, shiny fabric used in neckties. The gloss and soft touch of the material make this series stand out.
This design features cats that are sitting down and looking steadily this way and that on a pale, mint green base. Various cats have been expressed in detail through the weave of the necktie material. It's as if you’ve stepped into a place filled with cats. The cats have different types of fur, from those with a single color to those with a pattern. Among the various cats, you’ll occasionally find those who are playing with a pink ball of yarn.
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.
