Our favourite planner system!

We picked one up in a Tokyo stationery store and haven't looked back since. The Kokuyo Jibun Techo is a planner that organises all the different information you have in your life. Formats are designed to help you plan out your days, set goals, track progress and keep record of the many things that goes on in life.

JIBUN means “myself” and TECHO means “planner” in Japanese. The Jibun Techo is not just a planner, it is a fun way to learn about yourself - the more you write in your JIBUN, the more you can discover about yourself.

The Jibun Techo Biz is similar to Jibun Techo DIARY, but with a more muted colour scheme that matches business settings better. The components are useful for both business and personal planning.

DIARY: Your everyday planner. Vertical and monthly, includes a Gantt Chart for project management. Unique format for planning and organising information, 24-hour vertical layout, opens flat. 

The block layout allows the monthly schedule to be viewed at a glance. For greater clarity, the names of the days of the week are also given in kanji.

Sections: monthly schedule, monthly projects, weekly schedule, looking back on 2024, my dream in 2024, money plan, promise list, book & movie list, gifts given/received.

The planner uses faster-drying, lower-show-through MIO paper. The inner sheets have a pleasantly substantial feel, so the pages turn nice and crisply.

 Note: the Jibun Techo is in large part written in Japanese (it is still easy to use, just more fun!), you will find a translation of the table of contents here.
