I no longer really maintain this site. I really haven't worked
on it since 1996. If there's a link that's broken or something, I suppose

Please don't ask about how to write your name in Japanese, what kanji
you should use for a tattoo, or other translation things. Feel free to
use the dictionary as much as you like, but if it's not there, you'll

If you have a question about how to get Japanese to work with your

If you have a question about how the server works, or where the data
comes from, or how to get a local copy of the data for your system,
please read all the documentation that I've already written
before asking. Most email I get would be avoided if people just RTFM
(Read The Manual).
If you'd like to be so kind as to add to the dictionary data, or
correct problems you might notice, it is probably best to contact the
Master of the Data, Dr. James Breen, directly.
