I could not be happier with this dictionary. I have been studying kanji daily for 3 years now and, up until my recent purchase of the Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary, I have used Hadamitzky and Spahn's Japanese Kanji and Kana guide (which is also an excellent resource, especially for beginners). My favorite feature of the Kodansha dictionary is the three major methods of lookup it provides. This includes the System of Kanji Indexing by Patterns (SKIP), an On-Kun index, and a radical index. It is also nice to have all of the official Jinmei kanji in one place. Worth noting is that a firm grasp of hiragana and katakana is necessary for easy use of this dictionary as it does not provide romanized readings of kanji or compounds. Overall, an excellent resource that is well-worth the price.

The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary Revised and Expanded, is all you could hope for and more, much more. With the brilliant and easy SKIP method of kanji lookup, plus 4 other methods, the kanji you want can be found in less than a 1/2 minute, (unless you stop to browse, which is very tempting). The 5 methods of lookup are clearly and simply laid out on the inside of the front and back covers with more descriptive material on the methods in the appendixes. Easy to understand.

Extremely valuable are the Core meanings with the pertinent Kanji in red. If you know a core meaning, you can understand or sense what an unknown compound means. Handy as well are the stroke order diagrams to help you learn to write the characters better and to count strokes correctly. There are also tips for correct counting of strokes in Appendix 2.

I have used the SKIP method with the first edition's electronic version as well as in the App so I was a bit concerned the paper version would slow me down. Not at all! I now prefer the paperback for the beauty of it and for browsing.

Gone is the romaji of the first edition making this a highly more usable dictionary, more professional and more in line with current teaching. There are 3002 kanji, 772 more than the first edition and thousands of compounds which appear to be well chosen. The meanings are precise, well written and also well chosen. The front and back material is very interesting and Jack Halpern and the others who worked on this dictionary should be highly applauded and greatly thanked!

The paper is perfect with some see through but not in anyway disturbing, the text remains quite clear.The type used for the hiragana and katakana is beautifully clear and so easy to read, with no inky muddiness, no lines running together. It is very well designed, the cover is sturdy. The center margin is wide enough for readability when opened. At 1 3/4 inch thick, it is full value for the money.

I don't feel you have to be only a learner to get full value from this dictionary. It is going to be by my side for many years. Thank you Jack Halpern!

First use of this dictionary is rather unusual due to its layout. For the main portion, the dictionary is divided first into structure (such as left/right - 郡, top/bottom - 奈, enclosure - 国, or whole - 大), then into stroke for the first radical (left, top, enclosure) then stroke count for the remaining portion. For example, 町 would be 5 strokes (田), followed by 2 strokes (丁), or LR section 5-2. Once you go to a section, there is a guide on the edges of the page that show the first radical used for that section.

If you don't know the stroke count, and want to look by the kanji, flip to the very back of the book. There, the kanji are sorted into an index by the same method, which makes it easy to find which one you are looking for and tells the exact page to flip to.

Overall, I recommend this book if you are planning to translate the most common kanji over and over again for practice. If you only need it for once-in-a-while use, I recommend using an online lookup tool or the app version of this book.

Similar looking kanji have always been nightmare for me. Therefore, I needed a printed dictionary where the kanji are categorized according to their similarity, and the radicals. I think this is what called "jibiki" in Japanese. I also recommend "Dictionary of Japanese Grammar" book for beginners. They go along together for a good self study pack. I do not like subject-oriented books like Genki or Minna no Nihongo, I would like to study the way the most people would say "boring". It is also time saver. Don't get me wrong, the dictionary is pretty much fun to use. You just have to get used to categorizing systems-there are four- to find whatever you are looking for quickly.

I presumably fall in somewhere between the beginner and the intermediate level, I can recognize and read up to 600 kanji, and hundreds of words made of kanji, but I have yet to notice any mistakes. For more advanced vocabulary, it would be better if there were more words of the given kanji, but it is not essential for the beginner or lower intermediate.

It's very tiny, pocket-sized but a little bit thick. The most used kanji are in red, others in black. The design, page color, fonts, etc. are adjusted so it won't be tiring for your eyes.

There is one thing I wanted to be different. Cover is too thin, so I fear that I will damage it if I don't carry very carefully. It comes with a case, but I wish there was a hard cover version.

I am a really picky person when it comes to dictionaries, so when I first heard about this dictionary from my Japanese professor. I was really interested, and more because I'm a visual learner.
