    This is really helpful info; thanks for passing it along. I'm not planning on buying any special stuff this year so I guess I'll wait until December for the 5 Year Techo.

    The English planner (black) is imprinted with 手帳, which is the kanji for Techo. If you get the A6 Techo (cream colored), that's all in Japanese except for the front cover and a few select phrases.

    Hey afreen, welcome to the Forum. That's a bummer about the straps. In my experience, whenever I find the straps painful, it's because I've loaded the bag unevenly with too much weight up at the...
