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

された
He was compelled to resign on account of ill health.
In English the thing you are forced to do is usually expressed as a verb. In Japanese, since the object is in noun form, こと must be added for typical verbs; する verbs can simply drop the する.
こくさい
国債
しゅうし
収支

はっせい

ブレーキかけること
よぎ
余儀
なく
された
The balance of payments crisis emerged, forcing the government to put a brake on the economy.
よぎ
literally means 'another method'. Here it is combined with なく, the adverbial form of ない (not), and される (the passive form of する, 'is done'). So the literal meaning is something like 'another method is made to not be' - ie, all other options were eliminated, and you are forced to do something.
