In this post, we are going to introduce the next best Japanese English dictionary which I have used extensively since the beginning of my journey to learn Japanese.

You will get a list of examples in Japanese with English translation.
The examples are mostly extracted from some reliable sources such as newspapers, articles, magazines, etc.
From here, you can see how they utilize the words, how they structure the sentence, how they express their meanings, etc. For me, I find it very useful.
On the other hand, if you input in English Japanese English dictionary;
Similarly, you will get a list of examples in English with Japanese translation.
What I like is that it can be used to look for some expression in English that cannot be directly translated into Japanese. They would look up the closest Japanese words or phrases that best match with what you want to say.
