Kanji Dictionary

  • search using any combination of Japanese, English, rōmaji or kana
  • combine multiple readings or readings and meanings for more accurate results, e.g. ken miru or ken ticket
  • use wildcards: * (asterisk) for zero or more characters, _ (underscore) for exactly one character (wildcards work only on kanji readings but you can use them with rōmaji)
  • put English keywords in quotation marks to search for the exact phrase
