This is by far the best Kanji Dictionary I've ever seen. Tremendous amount of information, stroke order, elements, you name it-it's in here! It has a heck of a learning curve-and it's good practice to use it looking kanji up by its basic element order. Expensive and worth it for true Japanese Language students!

One of the best and most concise Kanji dictionaries.

Still missing a few Kanji (words such as cretaceous), it's still more than adequate for a struggling Japanese student.

Works best with Shogakukan's English-Japanese and Japanese-English progressive line.
