  1. Jisho is synonym of Jibiki, but as present Japan people prefer use Jihso i/o Jibiki when I was asking to Japan people. Is it right? Japan people said that Jibiki is the old vocabulary

      You are absolutely right. I will next also post the word jisho. However, both are on the list of words required for the JLPT, so I post both of them.
