Kanji search

Postby tōkai devotee » Mon 05.26.2008 6:52 am

I'm just wanting to know is there an online dictionary where I can type in a kanji or 2 and it will tell me the reading? More often than not, I know what a kanji means but am unable to read it, especially 2 kanji together.
Thanks to anyone who may be able to help! :)

Have you tried the Kanji Lookup option on WWWJDIC?

If you want the reading of a kanji compound word, the dictionary on there might help you out.
