Complete, comprehensive and compact Japanese-English Dictionary!
I love this book! I'm a student of Japanese language, and this is a super little dictionary. Lots of entries, easy to use, with a section for Japanese words translated to English, and English to Japanese. It also has helpful grammar tips as well. It was a brand new book, for a very good price. I immediately covered it with Japanese wrapping paper, to keep it safe and new! I use it all the time now, and it has helped me with my Japanese studies. In combination with my Japanese textbook and CDs, I am learning to speak, read and write Japanese. It's also a nice compact size, so I can bring it with me on my next trip to Japan, and carry it easily in a jacket pocket or my handbag. I highly recommend this useful book.
