Top 3 Japanese – English Dictionaries You Can Get For Free.

Looking to download a Japanese English (or an English Japanese) dictionary?

For free?

Here’s my list of the top 3 dictionaries you can download or access online.

1) Jisho.org

This the best Japanese English or English Japanese (however you want to call it) dictionary online. Yes, there’s a mobile app version you can use as well. No downloads necessary. This site has saved me many a times whilst doing Japanese homework and needing to look up Kanji… or their stroke order… or in general, every word that I needed.

jisho

It’s a serious website dictionary with which you can…

  • look up words in English or Japanese
  • look up sentences
  • look up Kanji

Got to https://jisho.org to check it out and if you want to access it on your iPhone or Android, make sure to access it at https://iphone.jisho.org/ and save that page to your home-screen for convenience.

2) Imiwa? Dictionary App for iOS (iPhone & iPad)

I actually did a review on this App that you can check here. Unfortunately, it’s only for iOS. However, this is my go-to App when I’m not near a computer. And for an App, it’s quite powerful.

You can…

  • Look up words as a regular dictionary – English or Japanese
  • Look up example sentences of words
  • Look up Kanji
  • Learn Kanji stroke order
  • Learn for JLPT N1 to N5 Kanji
  • Paste in Japanese text and have it translated (Awesome)
  • Save lists of your favorite words

Download it from iTunes for Free here:

3) Rikai-Chan or Rikai-Kun

An absolute must-have. Rikai-chan/Rikai-kun is actually a plugin/extension for Firefox and Chrome browsers. It translates any Japanese word you hover your mouse over into English. This is perfect for when you’re reading Japanese articles online and need instant translation. (See below as an example.)
