This is certainly not a perfect dictionary, but it's compact enough to actually fit neatly into a coat pocket or carry with you (contrary to what are usually termed as "pocket" dictionaries). It's basic, and its compact size makes up for it's lack of content; just don't rely on it as your main or only Japanese<>English dictionary!

4.0 out of 5 stars As a more Advanced learner... 27 July 2013
By tAsTytEmPAi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used the Cantonese one when I lived in Hong Kong, and it was my favorite dictionary by far. So much so that I also bought this Japanese one and Latin American Phrasebook.

I lived in Japan before moving to Hong Kong, and was always aggravated when I would look up a word and my dictionary (ies) would give me 5, 10, 20 results. The worst part is, with my android and iphone dictionaries (such as imi wa), the results will also list many possible meanings for that word itself.

Now, this is a much better dictionary than most, however; after only just skimming through it for a few minutes I have already noticed some issues:

1. I looked up 'Nightmare' and there were no results. Now, the reason for this is that Japanese simply say "Warui Yumei" aka bad dream. Unfortunately, the book did not include the word 'Nightmare'. For a Native English speaker, it would have been nice for them to have at least included an entry for this word such that it would read: Nightmare Warui Yumei 悪い夢 and vice-versa.

2. I looked up 'Otosu' to test out the dictionary, and the word wasn't even listed! Of course, when I looked up 'To drop' in Japanese, guess what the first word that showed up was...Yep, 'Otosu'.

3. Lack of Hiragana. I understand that this book is made especially for beginners, and I appreciate the Kanji, however, it is a bit difficult to get used to the English phonetics.

Anyway, I would still say that this is a high-quality book and that it is much better than most dictionaries out there. If Periplus would revise it, it would be even better. Thanks!

It's easy to use with the phonetic and writing in Japanese. I can translate from English to Japanese and vice verse in a fast way.

I purchased this before a six week trip to Japan. I am a beginning Japanese student so I wanted a simpler dictionary with more common words. About 50% of the time, the word I was looking for was in the dictionary. But 50% of the time it wasn't. I would probably choose a more comprehensive dictionary if I could do it over again.
