Recommend Boooks For Japan?

Post by europabloke » Sun 04.19.2009 9:27 pm

Hi there,

I am heading to japan and just had a quick question...or two. I am both looking for a good dictionary to further study my japanese, as well as a dictionary and phrase book for when I go to japan. Can they be the same book possibly?

I'm fluent in the kana but know only about 100 or so basic kanji. I would,however, prefer the dictionary/book be in kana rather than romaji for ease of reading, better pronunciation etc..

So can you recommend any books that would help while I'm over there? I am really trying to make the most of the time and learn as MUCH AS POSSIBLE, so any and all tips are more than welcome!

My current level is (if i had to guess) high beginner low intermediate.
