Our customer reviews

Although it is primarily intended for children and young beginners, I think it could be a valuable addition to any Japanese students library. Hundreds of words each have their own illustrations and most pages have large, beautiful composite drawings. The subjects are incredibly diverse and include very useful and some unusual and fun words as well. The book uses English, roomaji, kana and kanji, so even advanced learners can use it to improve their kanji skills. I teach Japanese and find myself using this book as a support material for various age groups. I own several picture dictionaries of the sort, but I find this one the best by far. Highly reccomended!show more

Although most of us relate picture dictionaries to children, but this picture dictionary is suitable even for adults who are learning Japanese. There are about 1,500 words to be learnt on various subjects. Name of things in the classrooms, outdoors, bank, post office, jobs, space, pre-historical things, prepositions, adjectives, common verbs, numbers etc. There are a few other Japanese picture dictionaries out there. But the reason I chose this one was simply because, it was the only one I saw comes complete with romaji, Kana and kanji and also the English translation. When ever I have a few minutes to spare I just take this book out and memorize a few more words. I find it easier to remember with the help of some illustrations. I bought my first copy on Amazon and I gave that away to a friend. But I am missing it that I decided to purchase it again, but from here. :)show more

I totally love reading this book. As a beginner in Japanese, it provides readers with quite a comprehensive list of words for us to learn and be able to apply in daily life (e.g. colours, family, transportation, etc). The pictures are well illustrated too which is a plus point. Further, most of the words are written in Kanji. This provides good exposure to beginners of the Japanese language. No doubt one would not be able to memorize all the different Kanji if they are still at the Hiragana and Katakana level. However in time to come, it would serve as a good reference material once learners have advanced to the Kanji level in learning Japanese.show more
