Kanji Lookup - simple, fast, and hassle-free!
Kanji Lookup is a Kanji reference that focusses on - and attempts to excel at - one thing: Finding the meaning of an unknown Kanji character as quickly and easily as possible - simply by drawing it on your trackpad or tracing it with a mouse or stylus (of course you can also search using the keyboard).
Stop wasting your time counting strokes, deciphering radicals, or learning the intricacies of 'well-designed' lookup
schemes - simply start drawing the character and watch results appear instantaneously.
KanjiLookup does not clutter your results with obscure readings only found in the name of that one mountain village or cross-references to paper dictionaries you most likely don't own anyway. Instead, it simply shows you what you are looking for: The character's pronunciation and definition. In addition, a searchable list of the most relevant words containing the Kanji character is only a tap away - along with beautifully animated stroke-order diagrams, definitions, synonyms, and much more. Kanji Lookup even allows you to export stroke order diagrams so that you can perfect your penmanship, making Kanji Lookup the ideal study companion.
KanjiLookup was designed from the ground up for minimal start-up time, nearly instantaneous handwriting recognition, and a clean interface that doesn't get in your way. It currently contains information for over 3500 Kanji, including but not limited to all the Joyo and Jinmeiyo characters. Synonyms and definitions are currently in Japanese only.
