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

My current mastery of this grammar:

verb stem
+
しだい
次第
means
depending on ~; as soon as ~; thereupon ~; as ~
For example:
くうこう
空港
しだい
次第
でんわ
電話
します

I'll phone you as soon as I get to the airport.
次第 can be followed immediately by another phrase, as in the above example. It can also be joined to a subsequent phrase using に:
かのじょ
彼女
せいちょう
成長
する
つれて
しだい
次第
うつく
しく
なった
As she grew up, she became more and more beautiful.
Note that 次第に can also be used as a standalone expression to mean 'steadily'. For example:
しだい
次第
おお
いしゃ
医者
しんやく
新薬
つか
使
はじ
めた

More and more physicians have begun to use the new medicines.
次第 can be immediately followed by だ, and turned into a standalone sentence implying that an outcome depends on the clause preceding 次第. For example:
しけん
試験
かる
どう
きみ
しだい
次第

It is up to you whether you pass the examination or not.
