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

Grammar detail: からで〜

からで〜
Tweet
My current mastery of this grammar:
LOG IN to view grammar mastery data
からで occurs as a combination in several contexts. Generally, the で is the beginning of a longer word, such as a form of です or である (one of the plain forms of です) or ではない, or a form of another word beginning with で written in hiragana (such as でる, できる etc).
そこ
みず
おお
かった
からである
Because there was plenty of water...
かみ
もくざい
木材
からできている
Paper is made from wood.
Sometimes, however, the で functions independently. For example, it may be the て form of である, used to join two sentences together:
まえ
そんな
しごと
仕事
したことがあったからやさしいわかった
I'd done that kind of work previously, so I found it easy.
Or it may be the use of で in conjunction with は for emphasis:
それここから
しろ
える

It shows white from here.
In this sentence, ここから
しろ
える would also mean 'it looks white from here', but the addition of 'では' emphasizes the here - from here it looks white. The から is needed to convey the meaning 'from' here.
Or it may be the use of で in a form such as 〜でいい, meaning 'is ~ OK':
さいしょ
最初
ともだち
友達
からいい
ってください

I would be fine starting as friends, so would you go out with me?
In this sentence, から has the usual 'from' meaning - starting from (as) friends. The first で is then part of the でいい construction meaning '~ is OK, ~ is fine' etc.
