    To be fair, it took my ink well but I can still see my writing clearly through the other side. I am going to use it for 2018 and I don't know, maybe it will grow on me.

    @Cristina, you might get used to the ghosting. I'm on my third year with Hobonichi paper, and have grown to like seeing my writing and little doodles through the page on the left. Also, it makes the clean page on the right that more special. I've found the pencil board to help with ghosting too.

    Thank you @Rocks, I hope so.

    I have been using Clairefontaine and Atoma notebooks for awhile now specifically because pens don't show through, and I thought that the fact that the Hobonichi paper was good for fountain pens meant it wouldn't show through, but I was wrong!

    I love CF paper and Midori MD and various other Japanese brands (Kokuyo, Life) but I really love everything about the Hobonichi planner. It's weird at first, but it definitely grew on me. I like the Japanese version with the different color grid every month.

    The different coloured grids sound nice! Thanks for the encouragement. I will start filling stuff in and see if I get used to it.

    @Rocks, the shop in Kyoto is very small. I was hoping to eyeball the macaroon cover, but they did not have one at the store.

    On the first floor of the building is a Mina Perhonnen. Ohhh, their fabrics and the items they made out of them are very beautiful, elegant, unique with prices to match.

    I'm in the same boat. I hope it will hold my Hobonochi A6, my card case insert, and my second (Collections) notebook. I'm currently in the Raymay Multi-Use Covered Notebook. I took out the notebook it comes with and put in two pocket-size Tomoe Inserts (160 pages each) and my card case, and it's pretty stuffed. I love it, but I don't think I'm going to be able to put my Hobonichi in there in place of one of the inserts and still zip it closed. I hope the Nock Seed gives me a little more breathing room.

    ETA: I can't get the link to work properly. Check out the Raymay on Jetpens - it's pretty cool, and I hear you can carry the A6 Hobonichi in it as long as you're not planning on carrying much else.

    I am not sure if I am repeating someone here, but have you heared about Jibun Techo made by Kokuyo? It has the same paper as Hobonichi but it has a different calender layout: it‘s a month and a week with a couple of yearly views. No daily pages and the week is vertical like in the A5 Hobonichis.
    I use a calnder strictly for planing and journal in undated inserts/books so daily pages are too much for me. And the Hobonichi weeks while cute and well layed out does not work for me because I need a timeline to figure out where things either overlap or only have a tiny gap between (I track the timelines of three children. Just for my apointments a horizontal week layout would work fine)

    I will upload pictures later. It comes in an A5 slim size and in a B6 slim size. Meaning both have the standard hights of the DIN normed sizes but are not as whide. I have the lager version.

    Clairefontaine and Rhodia make thin notebooks that, I believe, could be included into an Hobonichi system the same way the Nook and other brand, like Nock can be used with it.

    You could, for example, use pencils, even mechanical pencils with multiple color leads inside the Hobonichi, then use your fountain pens, for notes, with Rhodia thin notebook.

    So...is it just me, or would the new Travel Cubelet be PERFECT for phone, Hobonichi (A6), and a few supplies?

    I was thinking the same thing. As soon as I get mine, I'm going to try it out. I'll share photos, but I'd love to see others' photos as well!

    In the U.S.A, Clairefontaine brand, is distributed by Exaclair as well as Rhodia notepads makers and Quo Vadis and Exacomptaplanner makers, they all have the same smooth fountain pen friendly paper.

    They all originated in France, at a time, when dip pens, then fountain pens were -the- writing instrument of choice.

    They all have great fountain pen friendly paper.

    Oh wow, I knew Rhodia used CF paper but I didn't know Quo Vadis also did! Thanks. I know I can get Quo Vadis planners here in the U.K. I shall check it out!
