Enable Japanese Dictionaries in Dictionary.app

Also, Spotlight will show results for each of those dictionaries in a search, so you can just Spotlight some Japanese text and you can see if it's in the dictionary or not very quickly.

I've also dragged "Japanese-English" as the first dictionary in the list in Dictionary's preferences, and zoomed the text size to about 20 pt so I can see the Kanji details.

My favorite trick is pasting in an unfamiliar Kanji in dictionary.app, and it will show you all the readings (pronunciations) for the Kanji, as well as the meanings and usage.

I'm sure I had enabled those dictionaries in Leopard.

(But for a very nice shareware Japanese dictionary, you can't beat JEDict, from JEDict.com!)
