Hobonichi Techo 2022 Planner A6 Omiya Yogashiten: Shall we have some tea? set
Hobonich Techo Planner 2022 set with cover "Omiya Yogashiten: Shall we have some tea?" (english)
The extremely thin Tomoe River paper with 52gsm enables a 448-page daily calendar with a handy thickness of only 14mm. The robust thread binding allows the calendar to be opened flat so that double-sided writing is not an issue. Despite the thin material, the Tomoe River paper is characterized by high opacity, which greatly minimizes the shining through on the back page. The paper is not just suitable for pencil and ballpoint pens, but also amazingly ink-compatible. The overall high quality ensures that the daily calendar can be archived for decades to come even after a year of continuous use and can therefore be browsed again and again.
With different monthly overviews, the calendar offers one page per day with sufficient space for appointments and notes. Please note that the planner is printed in English and the marked holidays apply only to Japan.
The cover made of high-quality polyester creates a robust feeling and reflects in a light glow. The two pen loops also serve as a lock to prevent accidental opening. The cover features also two bookmarks, one with a triangular and one with a square tag in the cover material, in order to differentiate the current position in the daily calendar and monthly calendar. In addition, the inside of the cover has several compartments and slots for cards and notes.
Information from the manufacturer:
This standard, butterfly-stopper style cover is modeled after the packaging of Omiya Yogashiten, a historical and beloved sweets shop in Kanda, Tokyo. Omiya Yogashiten is famous for treats such as strawberry shortcake sandwiches and colorful mixed-fruit containing plenty of strawberries. Equally popular is the packaging, which we’ve based this cover design on. The illustrations were drawn by a young woman who was a university art student at the time. The pastel-colored design is cute yet elegant, with a gentle feel. It shows a man and woman relaxing on a terrace, a boy playing with a dog, women and girls dressed up nicely, and other scenes that will brighten your day. We turned these packaging illustrations into a techo cover as a way to fill users with the same happiness and fun that comes from tasting the amazing treats from Omiya Yogashiten. The “butterfly-stopper” pen holders feature the design used on the bottom parchment paper for the shop’s cheesecake. The shop logo is silkscreen-printed onto the cover’s interior pocket. The bookmarks are pink and blue to complete the design with a cute look. Carrying this cover will fill you with as much joy and excitement as if you’d have bought a box full of treats to bring on your way home.
