Kanji database manual

You can use this interactive online Kanji database containing 2136 characters in 4 main ways:

  1. Selecting all Kanji characters from the database that match specified properties.
  2. Looking up the specified properties of a given Kanji character, or group of characters.
  3. Looking up the properties of compound words consisting of two Kanji (= Jukugo) or find Jukugo that contain a specified Kanji character.
  4. Run a SQL query on the databas(es).

For your convenience: do not use the <= back button of your browser, use only the menu and the buttons on the pages. By doing so previous choices are preserved from page to page.

If certain data columns are not displayed correctly when importing a CSV file directly in Excel (leading zeros disappear or similar problems): save the file as .txt file instead of .csv. Now import the file manually in Excel, specifying the data format of each column as "Text" in the import wizard to prevent automatic conversion by Excel. In the wizard you can also specify the characters to be used to separate decimals and thousands. In the original data only a decimal point is used.

SQL query

For the database specialists: run any SQL query you like using the Kanji and/or Jukugo databases. This is a very powerful tool. Table and column names can be entered by clicking, to prevent typing errors. Remember to always use backticks around `column names` and 'single' or "double quotes" around strings!
