Review by Ben Bullock

This dictionary gets a mention in this FAQ books list mostly because it is the reference work I used when writing several sections of the FAQ.

A book that is slanted towards high school students and even foreigners, this may be the closest thing to a learner's dictionary for students of Japanese. Contains also a useful list of colours, and lots of explanations and examples of usage which make it easier to use and understand than the standard kokuko jiten.
