App Description

Don't know how to read Kanji? You can look them up as is with Sanseido Japanese-Japanese Dictionary!

Sanseido Kokugo Jiten(三省堂国語辞典, Sanseido Japanese-Japanese Dictionary) known as Sankoku(三国) has been one of the most trusted Japanese-Japanese Dictionary of all since it was first published in 1960. With about 80,000 words(the 6th edition), it is widely chosen by from students to adults. The definitions of Sankoku are carefully edited using Kana as much as possible to state the meaning of the words plain and simple. Highly recommended for non-native Japanese speakers.


-Download the app and use it offline. Forget about the bad network connection. You can use it in subway, or in the aircraft.

-With our INDEX (インデックス), you can look up the words without typing the text. Just point out on the index you wish to look up and open the page. Experience it as if you were looking up words in the printed dictionary.

-Gojuon(五十音, fifty sounds) search lets you find the words from Gojuon list(ex. あ(a), い(i), う(u), え(e), お(o)).

-As well as Kana, you can also look up with Kanji if you don't know how to read it. Incremental search and voice search are also available. (voice search requires Apple's intelligent personal assistant on iPhone 4S or later).

-Select the word you wish to copy, paste, or jump to search. Enjoy the features that only app dictionaries can do!
