What is this?

KanTan is designed to make kanji lookup easier by combining kanji lookup and word lookup into one.

Normally, you would have to find each kanji separately and then look up the complete word in the dictionary. On this page you can specify a pattern for a complete word using the radicals that you recognize, and find all the words that match that pattern.

Syntax and usage

Work in progress

KanTan is a work in progress. If you have any suggestions how to make KanTan better, please let me know by opening an issue on GitHub.
