  • 漢字源 (Kanji minamoto) (ante-penultimate) gives you the kanji description, number of strokes, reading etc.
  • ジューニアズ和英辞典 (Junior’s WAEI Jiten) (penultimate) gives you the english translation (with hiragana reading of the word).

Find a kanji from strokes or readings
シフト (Shift) (green) and 漢和 (KanWa) the two boxes to the right are used to enter the number of strokes of the radical and the total number of strokes, the field below 音訓読み (ON-Kun-Yomi) is used to enter either the on or kun reading. Any of those fields can be left blank.
