This wasn't really what I expected out of a phrase book. I suppose I expected something more like the last ~50 or so pages of the book which is an actual phrase dictionary - listing the phrases in both english and japanese (and vice versa) complete with the hiragana/katakana or kanji characters.

The other few hundred pages are like a textbook - going over vocabulary, grammar, history, etc. While this will be helpful in the long-run it adds quite a bit of unnecessary heft to the pocket sized book. I'm not going to carry it around and flip through to find the chapter on ordering when I'm sitting in a restaurant.

I don't regret the purchase but I'm just not sure that this will be all that helpful in the longrun. I also purchased another phrase-style book, Instant Japanese: How to express 1,000 different ideas with just 100 key words and phrases! (Instant Phrasebook Series), which I would recommend in addition to this book. Having one or the other won't be much help but having both - using the Instant Japanese book to learn some vocabulary and the Phrase book for as-needed phrases - should be good.

I purchased Frommer's Japanese Phrase Finder & Dictionary in preparation for a two week trip to an area of Japan where most residents spoke no English. It was useful, however, I found the layout a bit difficult to negotiate quickly. I ended up copying my most frequently used phrases in the note pages in the back. On my next trip I will add a true English/Japanese dictionary to my collection

This is a compact well-thought-out little primer that will come in handy when I move to Japan. Not as fun as a "point and speak" picture dictionary but easier to carry. Only quibble ... illustrations are an eye sore and definitely cheapen the book. They shouldve done without. Font's easy to read though and thus the title of this review
