  • Tae Kim's nicely produced grammar guide. Beginner to early intermediate level
  • Ed Jacob's grammar page. One of the few grammar resources on the net... useful info for all levels.
  • Jim Breen's list of grammar points. Clearly laid out and easy to digest, Beginner to Intermediate level.
  • Keith Smillie's list of grammar points. Beginner to intermediate level, mostly in romaji. Includes those useful lists like counters and calendar.
  • Adjectives introduction to japanese adjectives


  • Rikai I use this site almost everyday to read japanese text.
  • popJisyo Similar to Rikai, with more features, maybe a little too much on one page.
  • These guys produce JQuickTrans, my favorite EJ dictionary and an app that stays open on my machine most of the day.
  • JWPCE Japanese open source word processor. Nice to use as the dictionary lookups etc. are built into one keystroke in the app. But it's a little funky!


  • kanjistudyguide A well put together kanji site. Amazing amount of work has gone into this... Also includes the Heisig mnemonics and stories to remember kanji.
  • kanjisite Nice large details of kanji and printable lists


  • JDIC Jim Breen's massive japanese dictionary project
  • ALC Good dictionary with example sentences.

And more!


Mail me here if you have a site you would like added to the list, or any comments for improvement!

ljfurlongJLPT Kanji Project, is much more complete and up-to-date when compared with Kanjisite, which seems to have been abandoned. It is similar in a lot of ways, but includes the ubiquitous EDICT, which breaks down the kanji in a handy sidebar. Have a look. 
dcLooks like a decent Kanji site...

btw does anyone know where to find a site with all the mnemonics from the Henshall "guide to remebering..." book?

bamboo4Here is a site with lots of Japanese onomatopoeia with English translations:

This site is in Japanese, but all onomatopoeic words are listed in katakana.

I do not vouch for the accuracy or competency of the English translations given, but they are fair.
PaulODon't forget for vocabulary building. 
sabraeThis is a grammar compilation done in Japanese that I recently found. Unfortunately, it's difficult to copy and paste (in order to look up words) because clicking transfers you to the next grammar point, but it seems pretty thorough. 
sabraeTo the person who wanted a list of onomatopoeia:

There is a book called 日英擬音・擬態語活用辞典(A Practical Guide to Japanese-English Onomatopoeia & Mimesis) that is like a dictionary with extensive examples and good explanations (in both Japanese and English).

Steve RynerHey guys, great site. Just wanted to drop a line to my kanji dictionary, It's more of a browsing adventure (based on Nelson's classic) without any searching functions yet. 
dchi steve - couldnt find the browsing, but sounds interesting. I often use the rikai kanji map when i have a few minutes:
ceruleanjen[] - Jeffrey's Japanese English Dictionary. I swear by it. Make sure to visit the customization page to turn on kanji in search returns.  
CWFound a great spreadsheet for learning Kanji up to JLPT level 2 here:
Hope others find it as useful as I have :)
dcthis is a pretty deep grammar dictionary, but just in japanese.

LemonyFreshSmurfI'm having issues on installing the Japanese word-processor on my computer. I've tried messing with Control Panel>Regional/Language Settings, but nothing seems to happen, and I'm unable to read any kana at all. Is there another way to go about it? 
uma_japan2006@yahoo.where can i get the complete set of joyo kanji list is there any web site for that 

Naruhodo! is a blog I started up recently. It covers a variety of topics about learning Japanese with an emphasis on studying with the Nintendo DS. Lots of articles about kanji, grammar, and keigo.
