Worth whatever you pay for it! I know that there are already a lot of reviews of this product but I think it deserves another one.
I am studying Japanese at a Japanese university at the moment on an exchange prgram from an English University and I use this product everyday.
I'm going to look at the strong and weak points in comparison to a standard ...[read more...]
Kanji Sonomama is the perfect tool for anyone learning Japanese. I have been learning for about 1 year now and would find it hard to live without. This is a translator. You can write in English and get Japanese or write in Japanese and get English. Example sentences are given in Japanese and English for each word. Hiragana is given for the kanji but only when searched in Japanese. Basic knowledge of kanji stroke order is required. This is one of the best apps on the ds. Far better than buying an electronic dictionary and Cheaper.

Great for japanese language study
It's an awesome software to translate kanji to english and vice-versa. Must buy for students of the language who have a DS.

My Japanese teacher said that this software is very complete and has great value. I have been using it since 2007. By the time being, I did not find two kanji.

One of the most helpful dictionary I can ever have.
Convenient since I won't have to carry the conventional dictionary around and it helps in searching for pronouciation of words as well.
Think it also costs a lot less than the electronic dictionary, even if you are buying the DS console plus the software.

Very good dictionary. I bought this instead of paying $300 for a new dictionary, and it is just as good, and is almost exactly the same as one. So if you have a ds I recommend this game instead of dishing out for a new dictionary. Though it can be a little confusing at first, and takes a bit of getting used to. I'm still trying to figure everything out

It's great when I need to translate kanji I'm not familiar with! It's saved me in more than one instance.
The only negative thing I have to say is that there are times that I do the stroke order correctly but it doesn't bring up the kanji i wrote. I can always use the "similar" kanji tab, but sometimes it's a pain, especially if I have a time restraint.
