Done with 2021 and want to start making 2022 plans? Kokuyo Jibun Techo Beige – Biz 2021 is now available for pre-order at Misc-store Amsterdam. Shipping Late August.
The Jibun Techo Beige – Biz 2022, Kokuyo's newest colour, is a powerful engine for organising your life. This starter kit comes with a black cover and a special edition of their DIARY designed especially for a professional appearance. This version features slightly more refined typography and a simpler colour scheme, and is printed on Kokuyo’s premium 60gsm MIO paper.
This edition of DIARY, just like the Standard DIARY, is primarily composed of a weekly agenda spanning mid-December 2021 to the first week of January 2023.
Each spread has space to record the weather, your mood, times for sunrise and sunset. Handily, they’ve placed a to-do list on the left-hand side of each week.
Next to this is a project planner (from December 2021 to February 2023) and a monthly calendar (December 2021 to March 2023).
All the lists and organising features available in the Standard DIARY are available in the Jibun Techo Black – Biz 2022, with the exception of the standard’s extensive maps of Japanese public transport and list of time zones (which describe cities in relation to Tokyo time).
In their place is a simple 8-page section of gridded paper for you to take notes in.
For those who are curious about trying out both the LIFE and NOTE features, never fear: this cover is Kokuyo’s Slim A5 size, same as the First Kit, so all the pieces are interchangeable. LIFE and NOTE can be added to the Jibun Techo Black cover when you’re ready to buy them.
Likewise, you can replace the DIARY filling once the year’s over. The purpose of Jibun Techo is to be able to build up as much – or as little – as you need.
The Jibun Techo Black – Biz 2022 is also available in a Mini size. The Standard version of the diary comes as part of the First Kit, alongside the LIFE and NOTE additions.

Made in Japan
Ask a Japanese person and chances are he or she has used a Kokuyo Campus notebook throughout his student years. In this Kokuyo is a big name, but it goes beyond this. Kokuyo was founded in 1905, soon becoming the industry leader in paper products (from account books to letter paper, forms and notebooks). In 1960 Kokuyo has ventured into a transition "from paper to metal", producing their first filing cabinet. With the economy of that day and age (increasing complexity of administration x economic growth), there was a growing demand for know-how (filing systems) and office supplies (paper products) to manage the ever-mounting pile of paperwork effectively.
Kokuyo x Misc-store Amsterdam
Imagine an Office Depot catalogue, ranging from office supplies, filing system to facility management. Think of the total number of brands and suppliers in this Office Depot catalogue. Kokuyo's Catalogue is exactly this, but all items fall under their own brand. The product range is huge.
Here in Amsterdam, we flicked through the pages of this catalogue, in awe of its magnitude, smiled by some smart office solution and stationery items and surprised by the variety of products. From this catalogue, the Think of Things selection in their Harajuku, Tokyo store, and the Kokuyo Design Awards, we realized Kokuyo is true to its heritage, but also constantly thinking and moving forward.
At Misc-store, both in our Amsterdam shop as online, we proudly carry some of Kokuyo's earlier steel desk items. The designs have not changed since their product launch. We also carry their famed Campus notebooks and some of their contest to market entries form their Kokuyo Design Award, such as the beetle tip marker and the Kadokeshi Eraser.
