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.

  • 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

The verb いただく (sometimes written with kanji as 頂く) is used in several situations and grammatical forms. This article provides an overview.

いただきます / いただきましょう

The first usage of いただく you may encounter is as part of the set phrases, いただきます and いただきましょう, which are both used before meals. いただきます means effectively 'thank you for the food'. In the same situation, いただきましょう means 'let's eat'.
パイもう1ついかがですええいただきます
"Will you have another slice of pie?" "Yes, please."

a polite form of もらう

The verb もらう is the standard verb meaning 'receive' or 'accept', and いただく is a humble (and hence politer) direct equivalent. This is often used as a polite way to ask for something or accept an offer for something.

言葉
あま
えて
もう
いっぱい
一杯
いただ
きます

If you insist I'll have another drink.
この
かさ
いただきます
I'll take this umbrella.

て form + いただく

The て form of a verb plus いただく is the humble form of てもらう, and is used to mean having someone perform the action described by the verb on one's behalf.
かれ
じゅうぶん
十分
べられる
よう
はか
らって
いただ
けません

Could you please give him enough to be able to eat?

causative て form + いただく

The causative form of a verb plus いただく takes this a stage further - now, the action is being performed by the speaker, but the speaker is 'humbly requesting permission' to perform the action.
はな
させていただいても
よろしいでしょう
May I speak with you?

ご + する verb + いただく

This is similar in meaning to the て + いただく form, but used with する verbs.
どなたか
しょうかい
紹介
いただけませんでしょう
I wonder if you would kindly introduce us to someone.
