JD stands for "Japan Dictionary"

We started this website with the hope of creating a digital media that would be useful to all those who are interested in Japan and wish to know more about the country’s history, culture and language.

We are here to add new meanings of Japan to your life!


Team JD is a diverse group of people with many different backgrounds, including Japanese people and foreigners who actually live in Japan for many years and are able to share their private experiences about many aspects of Japan.
The one thing all the members have in common is their love for Japan!

We deliver fresh and useful information about Japan with a reader-friendly mindset as our top priority.
