Described as a "Life Book", the HOBONICHI planners have been a cult favourite among fountain pen users since its introduction in 2001. Made of ultra-thin, ink-friendly 52gsm Tomoe River Paper, the compact planner features a lay-flat design and various planning spreads to help document everything from your busy schedule to your reflections on the world around you.
The Original Planner is the classic portable planner which includes headings and labels in Japanese. This daily planner and journal includes a pre-printed schedule on the left hand side of each page that runs from 4am of each day until 4am the following day. It also has a checklist on the upper right corner to fill in a few to-do task. At the bottom of each page, users will find a special quote giving a little nugget of wisdom or offering a whimsical thought to ponder for the day. The final few pages in each book features a miscellany of Japanese informational pages with fun facts about traditional Japanese culture.
