The Kodansha Kanji Learner’s Dictionary by Jack Halpernis the best kanji dictionary ever written. You can look up kanji in 5 different ways and there are 3 different indexes, so even if you’re a complete beginner you can quickly find the kanji you want.
The Kanji Learner’s Dictionary has a special visual look-up method called SKIP, the System of Kanji Indexing by Patterns. SKIP lets you find a kanji very quickly by using the shape of the kanji.
So many useful kanji are included, and there’s loads of information about each kanji so you can use the book as a way to study kanji, not just as a way to look up kanji when you are reading a Japanese book or manga or magazine.
Every kanji and kanji compound is shown in a variety of examples which means it’s much easier to understand what the kanji really means and how it’s used in real Japanese.
