    Jim's work is generally regarded rather highly, but IIRC there are licensing issues that would prevent our using his data. (The same sorts of problems prevent our using CC-CEDICT or CantoDict for Chinese.) We do, however, use EDICT, to provide information on Japanese compounds in the online front end for the Unihan database.
