I’ve made a dictionary of English names written in Japanese. Some time in the not-too-distant future I’m also hoping to have Jim Breen’s WWWJDIC dictionary available on this site.

For the time being, here are some tools for accessing WWWJDIC and Yahoo Japan’s online Japanese–English dictionary. These dictionaries work best with single words. If you want to translate phrases or sentences, try the free translation page instead.
