Like most of the Japanese dictionary apps out there, the data is from the awesome JMdict project made by the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group thanks to Jim Breen and others.
Permission to access USB Storage/Photos/Media/Files is required to be able to export and import words lists to USB Storage if you do so from the menu. None of your other files or photos are accessed.
Network Connection Permission is used to send your contributions to takoboto.jp if you do so in the app, download language translations if you select them in settings or connect to the cloud service for subscribed users. Otherwise network connection is not required (dictionary works offline).
