Back to doodling in a Hobonichi Techo!


I am terribly sorry that my shop has been temporarily closed again!!  I opened my shop on the 10th after my holiday, however a large number of orders suddenly came through so I had to stop accepting any more new orders.  I am going to re-open tomorrow morning (Friday, 17th) but there is still a possibility that a lot of orders will come through again. In that case it might take longer than usual to send items (it can take up to 6 to 7 days to send items).  Thank you very much for your understanding, and if you are not in a hurry maybe it’s best to order sometime later, maybe in February 🙂


While I was visiting Japan I was quite busy meeting up with friends and so on and didn’t have much time for shopping.  Unfortunately I didn’t have time to go to my favourite big Loft store (they sell a huge amount of cute stationery items!), but I could go to the small Loft store in Kawagoe city where my dad lives (where I used to live as well before coming to the UK).

Kawagoe city:


At the small Loft store in Kawagoe, there was a small section for the Hobonichi Techo (Japanese day-per-page planner).  There were some basic Hobonichi Techo and some nylon covers so I bought a regular sized Hobonichi without a cover.

I wasn’t planning to buy a Hobonichi Techo as I’m using my Filofax in 2014, but I’ve actually  been missing doodling on Hobonichi’s daily pages.  I can doodle on Filofax pages of course, but I somehow really missed doodling in Hobonichi Techo!!

So anyway, I got a Hobonichi Techo and a “shitajiki”, but I didn’t get a cover because I have  a leather cover which was purchased in 2009. (Shitajiki = a hard sheet to place under paper for writing.)

So now I’m back to doodling again, yay!  In 2014, I’m going to use my Filofax for work and Hobonichi Techo as a diary and for lots of doodling!

I’m using my multi8 for colouring 🙂


Thanks for reading!

    • Hi Suzee! I’ve seen an American seller selling a Multi 8 on eBay! It’s a “Pentel Multi 8” 🙂 I love the paper of Hobonichi Techo, it’s really thin (but the ink doesn’t go through easily!) and smooth and just perfect for doodling!

  2. Hello, while browsing for anything Hobonichi, I found your post and enjoyed reading it very much. I love the red leather cover, would you be able to let me know where you bought it? Even though it has been a few years. 🙂
    I also enjoy reading your Filofax posts. Have a wonderful day. Susanne

    • Hi Susanne! Thank you very much for your comment 🙂 The cover is actually brown, and I bought it from the Hobonichi Store in 2009! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed reading my posts, thank you! I haven’t been able to update this blog as I had a baby last year, but once the things settle down I hope to start spending more time for my beloved Filofax and update my blog like I used to ❤ Have a wonderful day, too!
