Read print Japanese better than ever before.

The Japan Reader app was created to help people who wish to improve their Japanese reading proficiency or who are simply trying to navigate life in Japan. The app attempts to assist readers with information only as they need it, helping to learn new vocabulary and improve reading speed.

Import images of a newspaper, magazine, textbook, or other print media. You can use a smartphone camera or scanner to make the images. Once they are in your device, add them to the Japan Reader library and you’re ready to read.

As you read a text page and encounter a word you do not know, touch the word to show the furigana and definition. Words are collected in a list as you read for later review and drilling.

SUPPORTS OVER 70 LANGUAGES
Provides dictionary definitions in more than 70 languages including Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, English, Korean, French, German, and more.

OCR TECHNOLOGY TO ANALYZE PRINT TEXT
Uses optical character recognition technology to analyze print text, identify word furigana, and display definitions.

ASSEMBLES WORD LISTS AS YOUR READ
A word list is assembled as you read. Words are added to the list when you touch on the page to view a word's furigana or definition.

DRILL VOCABULARY IN CONTEXT
Study with drills that challenge your memory using a word's original context. Other drills allow you to practice memory recall using queues from kanji, reading, or definitions.

Amazing!

Why didn’t I find this before! It’s simple to use and actually translates the Japanese characters.

cannot import a photo

The functions look good to me but I failed to add my first image. When I tried to add it from my photos, it has error and asks me to check my internet. But it is from my local iPad. Will you help to fix it? Thanks very much
