Reviews - What do customers think about Tuttle Compact Japanese Dictionary: Japanese-English English-Japanese?
Great dictionary, missing some vocab, kanji Oct 30, 2007
I owned an older edition of this dictionary, and it really served me well over the years. I like the simple format used to organize words, and I especially liked that that you could lookup verbs through different conjugations, not just the infinitive form. I really wore out my dictionary over the years through constant use.
The only problem I could find with the older edition is that some common words were missing (toriaezu for example, I hear that one often), and it would have been nice if the Japanese kana/kanji was added as well.
Still, if you do run across this book, and you need a quick reference to Japanese, don't pass this one up.
