"Jibun" (ジブン) comes from the Japanese word which means "self", and “techo” (手帳) means planner. This planner is designed to be a planner for myself which not only for a year, but a planner for a lifetime".
Each set Includes two notebooks, one for Jan-Jun 2023, another one for Jul-Dec 2023. The thickness for one notebook is almost same with Jibun Techo Diary, so it is convenient to carry around.
Each daily page features a T-shape 24 hours axis placed in the middle of the page, dividing each daily page into half.
