Eba Hiroki is an amateur who wrote this dictionary in 1992. When Takemiya Masaki was asked to write a preface for this life and death dictionary, he was surprised that such a high quality work was written not by a pro. Takemiya concludes his preface by endorsing this book as a good book for everyone to have in their collection.
