Hobonichi Techo 2018 Lineup Preview Event at Tobichi 🌈 📓

Hi everyone!

Today, I went to Tobichi for their Hobonichi 2018 Lineup Preview. It wasn’t my first time to attend a preview event by ほぼ日 and you can check out last year’s lineup event report here.

After doing some work errands for Rainbowholic Shop, I went straight to Minami Aoyama from Shinjuku.

To go to Tobichi / Tobichi 2, just take the Tokyo Metro bound for Omotesando and the nearest exit to Tobichi store is A4 exit.

Took photo of a spread from my Avec.

To those who are wondering, my hobonichi planner right now is the A6 Size (Hobonichi Techo Original) but in avec version. Avec is for people who love overdoing their journals (if there is such thing, haha). It has 2 books / parts (January – June, July – December).

The ABCs of Journaling + Kawaii Sticker Party + Hobonichi Techo 2017

Hi everybody!

Here’s a brief (but still photo-spammy lol) blog post of announcements & updates!

To start, I’d like to invite everyone who’s in Manila to the epic book launch of “The ABCs of Journaling” by my forever inspiring friend, Abbey Sy!

Processed with VSCO with 4 preset

I can still remember the time when she was just telling me about this over Skype!

Months later, here it is! She gave birth to another baby, haha! And boy.. the labor was hard, lolol (labor of love, that’s why haha). I’m a (proud) witness of this #theroadtoabc2016 journey!

2017 Hobonichi Techo Lineup Preview Event at Tobichi 2 📝

Hi everyone!

Last Sunday, I went to Aoyama, Tokyo to visit Tobichi 2 for the Hobonichi Techo Lineup Preview event!

Hobonichi Techo Lineup 2017 Tobichi 10

If you are looking for hobonichi journals & original stationery goods, Tobichi is the place to visit.

I bought my Hobonichi Techo Cousin when my friend Abbey & I visited LoFT Shibuya last Spring. Some LoFT or Tokyu Hands branches do not carry Hobonichi journals anymore (only for limited time) so you’re best option is Tobichi.

Before the actual photos taken at Tobichi 2 (where the exhibit was), let me show you around Tobichi first! ❤️


From JR Harajuku station, I took Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line for Omotesando.

It was so hot last Sunday so I skipped the long walk. From Omotesando, I just followed the directions based on Google Maps! 🙂

At first, I thought that the exhibit was taking place at Tobichi. Apparently, this is what they call Hobonichi Heaven, lolol.
