    Question I need help with this kanji.

    Unfortunately my computer won't cooperate when I use Kanji so I'll use this picture instead.



    I know the first three and the last one, but not the forth. In order it's "Open," "Heart," "Good Fortune/Happy," "???," "Year."
    Can anyone help me out please?

    If you know the reading of the word, there's a Firefox extension called Rikaichan that will allow you to highlight a Kanji in Firefox and it'll tell you what it means.

    That's the problem though, I don't recognize it, so I don't know the reading. I will look into that extension though, thank you.

    you're actually supposed to read the 3rd and 4th characters together coz they're actually a compound word.
    幸福, which is pronounced こうふく, means happiness.

    example sentence (taken from a website):
    幸福の秘訣は、自分がやりたいことをするのではなく、自分がやるべきことを好きになることだ。
    byジェームズ・バリー

    my translation:
    the key to happiness is not to just do what you want to do, but to like what you are supposed to be doing.

    A rather crafty trick of mine: jisho.org, and then go into the 'Kanji by radicals' section. Rather useful when you find a kanji in a book or image that you don't recognise. ;3

    I use the writing feature on ime. If you click the paint bucket icon, there is a feature that lets you draw the kanji. Very handy!
