For detailed instructions, see the Component builder how to guide.
To find any kanji, first try to identify the components it is made up of. Once you have identified any component, search for it in any of three ways:
  1. Draw it in the drawing area
  2. Type the name in the text area
  3. Look for it in the list
Example: look up 漢
  • Notice that 漢 is made of several components: 氵 艹 口 夫
  • Draw any of these components (one at a time) in the drawing area, and select it when you see it
  • Alternatively, look for a component in the list. 氵 艹 口 each have three strokes; 夫 has four strokes
  • If you know the meanings of the components, type any of them in the text area: water (氵), grass (艹), mouth (口) or husband (夫)
  • Keep adding components until you can see your kanji in the list of matches that appears near the top.

The Kanshudo Component Builder can recognize any of the 416 components listed in the chart below the drawing area. Tips:
  • Draw a component in the center of the area, as large as you can
  • Try to draw the component as it appears in the kanji you're looking up
  • Don't worry about stroke order or number of strokes
  • Don't draw more than one component at a time

verb stem
+
あげる/あがる
is used to indicate that an action has been or will be completed.
あげる is used to indicate a transitive context (so and so has finished doing something), whereas あがる is used to indicate an intransitive context (something has come to an end).
For example:
  • しょくじ
    食事
    ができあがった dinner is ready
  • ほん
    を書き上げた I finished writing the book
Several verbs are commonly used in this way:
  • できあげる finish preparing (eg food) or できあがる be ready / prepared
  • 書き上げる finish writing
  • 築き上げる finish building
  • 立ち上げる start up, boot up
  • 縛り上げる tie up
  • 作り上げる finish making
Note that 読み上げる does not follow quite the same pattern - it has the special meaning 'read aloud'.
