God's (or the kami-s') gift to non-readers of Kanji, this dictionary provides Japanese words and terms in both Japanese characters and Romaji (romanized Japanese). Since I can't look up words in a standard Japanese-English dictionary to save my life, I can't begin to say how grateful I am for this type of dictionary. With over 50,000 entries, it's a bargain for its size, too! ( )
