An earnest little guidebook aimed at English speakers, this gives a basic, profusely illustrated introduction to hiragana, katakana, and kanji (the two syllabic alphabets and the Chinese-derived characters) in which Japanese is written. Judging from the little stand-in cartoon character, it's aimed at businessmen. In addition to a lot of words, it gives good introductory explanations of how to write and how to use Japanese dictionaries.
