This is a comparatively simple product that can be used to quickly generate Japanese names (or at least close approximations - not being a speaker of Japanese, I cannot vouch for the accuracy of information, but it is certainly much better than anything I could achieve on my own). Besides the name generation, the cards also include the Japanese characters and translations (again, I make no statement as to the accuracy), and the product includes some detailed discussion into Japanese dating and numbering, as well as numerology and divination using names. It is a very good product that achieves its stated goal and can be used quickly and easily, and is certainly of great use to anyone who needs to produce a number of believable Japanese-sounding names and does not speak Japanese. It is also a nice touch that the cards are designed with different borders (to distinguish male, female, and etc.) so that they can be printed out in black & white and still be used (although I suspect that they are much easier to confuse when the color-coding is not evident)
