Is there a reasonably complete dictionary of Japanese that includes IPA pronouncing keys? I can find plenty of sites with audio files, but I'd like to be sure I'm getting the phonemes exactly right.

    I would think there's not such a dictionary but maybe there is one for linguists somewhere. The orthography is close enough to the pronunciation to render such a dictionary largely superfluous. This guide on wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_Japanese ) supplies IPA for most (if not all) of the sounds that occur in Japanese. – virmaior Feb 9 '14 at 22:11

    There are pronunciation dictionaries for Japanese (such as the NHK日本語発音アクセント辞典). They don't contain IPA, but they do contain some additional information the Japanese writing system leaves out: where the pitch accent is located, when the nasal allophone of /g/ is available, and which morae typically have devoiced / reduced vowels. – snailboat Feb 9 '14 at 22:26
