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.

For questions, comments, or if you would like to add your review to the above list, please email Ben Bullock <> or use the discussion group for this web site.
