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

not only X, but also Y
In this case, X and / or Y can be an

plain form verb
. Typically Y would match the form of X.
For example, using adjectives:

Using verbs:
かのじょ
彼女
きょうし
教師
であるばかりでなく
いだい
偉大
がくしゃ
学者
でもあった
In addition to being a good teacher, she was a great scholar.
The meaning of ばかり is 'only', and here it is combined with でなく (the joining form of でない, is not), so the meaning becomes 'not only'.
This usage of ばかり is interchangeable with ばかりか.
かれ
100ドルばかりそれ
いじょう
以上
っている

He has not less than 100 dollars.
ばかりでなく can be written with kanji as 許りでなく, but this is a rare form.
