The New HON Techo is a hardcover version of the Hobonichi A6 Original with an Attached Cover
JAPANESE VERSION: The English version will be made available in November
This cover design is based on Shigesato Itoi’s 1989 Famicom game MOTHER (EarthBound Beginnings in North America). The design matches the groundbreakingly simple original cover of the game, with a large golden logo over a red background. The design stood out compared to standard game boxes of its day, and its appeal has only grown over the years.
This beautiful design encapsulates the feeling of new beginnings in the MOTHER series, which over time would branch into games that captured the hearts of a diverse audience across generations.
As a free bonus, this cover includes a pack of 12 clear MOTHER 2 stickers of various sizes.
It’s a perfect cover for fans of the MOTHER series.
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 A6 size pages and features a page per day. The contents are the same as the Hobonichi Techo Original.

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.
