The full moon fills the night sky. Tokyo Tower sparkles underneath the light of the moon as it stands with a metronome needle attached. The lights from surrounding buildings encircle the rhythmic tower, and in the distance is a bright blue line along the horizon. Could that be the sea?
Look at the back of the techo and you’ll see a grand piano atop a building roof and animals sitting at the piano. Perhaps the deer and the bear are about to begin playing a two-person piano duet to the rhythm of the metronome.
Hobonichi Techo Original A6 Tokyo Metronome is designed by Hiroko Kubota. This cover is so delightful you can practically hear the wind carry the distant sound of the deer and bear playing the piano to the steady rhythm of the metronome.
The charms on the ends of the bookmarks contain two different square designs to emulate the lights coming from the windows of surrounding buildings.
We hope this cover serves as a nice companion for many nights as you find yourself often gazing at its artwork.
Do you want to know more about the planner inside?
Starting from this year, you are able to choose your favorite language for the 2023 planner included in this set. It comes in Japanese (called Hobonichi Techo Original) or English (called Hobonichi Techo Planner) languages and you also find an image to see the differences.
Its daily pages offer plenty of space to fill despite the book’s compact A6 size. The graph paper offers an open layout for you to neatly lay out writings, clippings, and drawings. The daily quotes also provide users with interesting reading material.
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper, an ideal choice for a planner. A special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.
The daily planner starts from January 2023 and ends in December 2023.
