The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook

The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook



1, 800 Japanese sentences for everyday use, complete with audio and quizzes!

If you have ever wondered, How do I say that in Japanese? then this is the app for you!

The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook has been designed to help learners from beginner and up express themselves in natural Japanese. Going beyond the scope of standard phrasebooks for tourists, this application presents all the expressions a student, businessperson, teacher, homemaker, or other professional will need—not only to get by in Japan but also to set up a life there and make friends.

The app contains 1, 800 sentences organized into 19 chapters, and covers almost every situation a visitor to Japan is likely to encounter, from meeting people, shopping, and getting around, to finding a place to live, getting a job, and raising kids. A chapter on social interaction teaches you how to initiate a chat, agree and disagree, and express your thoughts on matters of importance, while another on feelings guides you through the various ways of expressing emotion in Japanese.

Each phrase comes with crystal-clear audio, read aloud by professional stage actors—first in English, then in Japanese.

Practical, insightful, and fun, The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook will make getting on in Japanese easier than ever. Just look up what you want to say, and say it!

Praise for the Print Edition

“Three key strengths: Emphasis is on making Japanese natural . . .; all examples are complete sentences, not clutches of isolated words; and there is minimal need for time-consuming page-flipping in search of related words”

—Japan Times

“a phrasebook that goes beyond “O-namae wa nan desu ka?” and actually gets you speaking like the locals”


“Packed with colloquial Japanese phrases, this handy book by two renowned writers and translators covers such topics as student life, business, tourism, home life and romance.”

—iNTOUCH Magazine (Tokyo American Club)

“This book gave me a chance to use idioms and colloquialisms in a language other than English, in a natural and appropriate way. It also helped me recognize when that language was being spoken to me in this way too, increasing my understanding far beyond the typical classroom and textbook-language usage”

—Being a Broad

“Not only practical and authoritative, it’s so entertaining you could use it as a mixer at a party!”

—Amazon review
