For details of all components and their English names, see the Component collections.

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

い adjective + と思います
新しいと思います。I think it's new.
な adjective + だ + と思いす
有名だと思います。 I think it's famous.
noun + だ + と思います
ここだと思います。I think it's here.
An interesting distinction between English 'I don't think...' and expressing the same sentiment in Japanese is that in Japanese usually the verb, adjective or noun before と思います/と思う takes the negative form, and と思います/と思う remains affirmative. This is not to say 思いません or 思わない are never used, but they are used far less commonly.
