Tagaini Jisho

Tagaini Jisho

Tagaini Jisho is an open source Japanese vocabulary and kanji dictionary that aims at presenting results in a way that makes it easy to create connections in your mind and remember them.

To allow this, it keeps track of all the entries you already know and allows you to tag and add notes to them. It also features kanji drawing animations for more than 6000 kanjis, flashcard-like training, production of paper material for studying, and extended search options for vocabulary and kanjis including part-of-speech and JLPT levels.

Tagaini Jisho makes heavy use of the embedded SQLite database.
