Hobonichi – Pencil Board | Tomitaro Makino


These pencil boards designed in collaboration with Dr Tomitaro Makino, often regarded as the father of Japanese Botany.

These pencil boards are designed to fit the A6 Planner/Original size, A5 Cousin size, and Weeks size. Keep it underneath the page you’re writing on to provide an enjoyable writing experience.

They are recommended for users who have filled their inner cover pockets with thick items or users who write with a lot of pressure and leave indentations on the opposite pages.

The board has one side  labelled by millimetre to act as a metric ruler, and a “Today” tab on the corner to mark the current page so it can be used as a bookmark as well.
