Great if you can read in Japanese, especially for students, 2 May 2001
I am an English university student studying Japanese, and I find this a really thorough dictionary which I am very happy with. It has lots of kanji and gives example sentences to help out if you don't know the context of the word. The sample sentences are in plain form though, so beware of using them directly in an essay which should be in polite form. If you are English speaking and cannot read Japanese (i.e. you are only learning to speak it) then don't get it, as all Japanese words are in kana.
