Satisfaction with many other Kodansha books led me to this dictionary. True to my expectations, I found it to be very easy to use. Even though it is compact, it contains an impressive array of words and the explanations are as clear as they are concise. This dictionary fully deserves the praise it gets from the Yomiuri and Asahi news services. I love it!

Accent included in this excellent dictionary Nov. 22 2008
By Eric Justice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been looking for a Japanese dictionary that includes pronunciation (pitch accent) and this is the only one I've found. I already had the furigana version, which is also a good choice, but unfortunately that one doesn't include the accent.

Terrific study aid Dec 6 2011
By Remo Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Kodansha Romanized Japanese-English dictionary is the right size and right resource for the beginner but serious student of Japanese. The entries are concise and provide very helpful sentence structures that reinforce the overall grammatical context.
As a matter of fact, this is my second copy of the dictionary. I keep one at work where I study my Japanese during breaks and keep the second one at home for home study!

Romaji Oct. 2 2011
By Kevin Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you can't read kanji, this is the (paper) dictionary for you. Look up anything in Roman letters. This was my main dictionary, then I got the $250 Casio electronic (great but not reading kanji limits functionality), and lastly I got a $20 dictionary for iPhone that is even easier while less comprehensive but it has everything I could ever want. Good item.
perfect companion for first year students Aug. 16 2014
By Dustin Brantley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the perfect dictionary for a first year or beginner Japanese student. It has easy to understand examples for the basic words you are likely to see in year 1-2 textbooks. Every student can make use of it. However I think you will quickly outgrow it but that is fine. After you move beyond romaji and expand your vocab past the most basic 1-2000 words, you'll know when it's time to move on.
