だから
means 'because'. Like other words for because such as それで, it can be used to begin a sentence, meaning 'So ...' or 'Therefore ...':
だから
かれ
はい
っていった

So he went in.
だから can also be used to join two clauses:
これ
じゅうよう
重要
から
じぶん
自分
しょり
処理
して
ください
Since this is important, I'd like you to attend to it yourself.
Like other words for because such as ので, it can be used to end a sentence:
これ
さいご
最後
から
This is the last time.
だから is formed by joining the copula だ and the particle から. As a result it is not uncommon to see ですから, replacing だ with the more polite です.
だから is often used as part of the set phrase だからといって, meaning 'just because ...'. For example:
だからといって
いぎ
異議
あるわけない
Not that I have any objection.

Change component list
By default the component builder shows the most common components (themselves joyo kanji, or used in at least 3 other joyo kanji). Select an alternative set of components below.



Full details of all components and their English names can be found here.
Help with the component builder
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.
For any components you recognize, if you know the English meaning or name, start typing it in the text area. Full details of all components and their English names can be found here.
Alternatively, count the strokes of the component, and scan the list to find it visually.
Example
To find the kanji :
  • Notice that it is made of several components: 氵 艹 口 夫.
  • 氵 艹 口 all have three strokes, so you could look in the list in the 3 stroke section. 夫 has four strokes.
  • Alternatively, you could start typing 'water' (氵), 'grass' (艹), 'mouth' (口) or 'husband' (夫) in the search area, and the components will be highlighted in yellow.
  • Keep adding components until you can see your kanji in the list of matches that appears near the top.
