I have started using this Dictionary as a beginner without any experience of reading a Kanji dictionary before. It is really easy to look at in whatever style and format you want to look at a word. For example, you can look for kanji in terms of stroke orders or pronunciation etc etc. It is worth every Yen and my vocabulary has greatly increased becuase of this Dicitionary. I recommend this to any beginner who is interested in using a Kanji dicitionary. I am writing this review in English to help those people who are not yet comfartable in reading Kanji.
