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

によって vs による
によって and による have essentially the same meaning, but they are not interchangeable. による is used to qualify the noun or noun phrase that follows it (eg によるもの). (Sometimes the noun is implied but missing, as in the last example above: によるね.) によって is the て form, so it qualifies the the verb in the phrase that follows it (eg によって~異なる).
Consider the following example:
わたし
たち
げんご
言語
によって
しそう
思想
ひょうげん
表現
する

We express our thoughts by means of languages.
Here, the によって form qualifies the verb 表現する: by means of (due to) language, ideas can be expressed. If we substituted による in this same sentence, it would qualify 思想, and the meaning would be slightly different: we express ideas about (depend on) language.
