Can you suggest a good japanese - japanese dictionary? I mean a dictionary in a book form, not on CD. Or maybe an electronic dictionary is better?

The first three of these look at least decent. I can't speak from personal experience, but there's a guy I know who has the 新明解国語辞典 and it seems to work well for him.

I'd recommend a 電子辞書 anytime! The reason is not that the electronic version has better content. It's mainly because it's much more portable that you can bring it around anywhere you like. At any point of time, if you need to search for a word, it's there for you to use. That way, you can learn much faster. Also, with advance feature like super search, you can find a word far more easier than a paper dictionary. I'm using a Sharp PW-9700 and I bring it along wherever I go.

You can order them form amazon.co.jp. That's where I got mine (the same one orochi has).
