This comprehensive dictionary of 36,000 entries has been the standard reference for students and scholars faced with the difficult problem of correctly prounouncing Japanese names. Now, finally, available in a larger and more readable format, the dictionary is divided into two parts, the first organized by stroke count, to facilitate the search for readings when the characters are known; the second part organized alphabetically by romanized reading, to facilitate finding the characters for names whose pronunciations are known. Included are the names of more than 7,000 individuals of literary, historical, or artistic importance, while multiple readings are listed in descending order from most to least likely.
