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

Asking permission

This construction can be put together with いい as a way of asking permission, meaning literally 'even if I do ~, would that be good?'. For example:

何時
くらいまでなら
でんわ
電話
してもいい
です
How late can I ring?

Use with question words

This construction is often used after a question word such as どこ (where) or いつ (when) or
なに
(what) etc, in which case the English meaning is 'wherever', 'whenever' etc. For example:
どこ
って
けしき
景色
おな

Everywhere you go will find the same scenery.

At most / at best etc

The ても form is often used with an adjective at the beginning of a sentence to indicate an extreme - for example, 長くても (if it is long) at the beginning of a sentence would mean 'At the longest ...'.
