Two cool sites for students of Japanese

It sure is a brave new world today.

In the old days, if you wanted to look up the meaning of a Japanese word, you had plod through a paper dictionary.

But no more.

Now, not only are there online dictionaries like Goo, but there's even the super-fast dictionary Type in an English or Japanese word, and its other-language equivalent appears almost instantaneously.

Another cool resource: clickable kanji lookup by radical at Denshi Jisho (Electronic Dictionary).

This has nothing to do with learning Japanese. Instead, it's just a mellow photograph of a circumhorizon arc, also known as a summertime halo.
