A note to first-time users
jeKai project is an online Japanese to English dictionary.
And while we do not want to discourage anyone from using the site, we have to admit that it is not very helpful for people who don't read Japanese, and it is not much help in answering questions like "how do you say 'rose' in Japanese?" For those sorts of questions, try EDICTor Eijiro

It is also not useful for answering questions like "how do I spell my name in Japanese?" For that try this page on Jim Breen's web site.

Almost all of the Japanese in jeKai is in Japanese script, not romaji (Latin alphabet), so you need a Japanese-capable browser to search and display the Japanese in jeKai entries. Or you could try viewing jeKai pages through the Shodoka web site, a graphical interface portal that renders Japanese web pages with graphics. Not much help if you don't read Japanese though.
