I just discovered this today: the Risu Dictionary, a on-line kanji learner's tool. Simple, clean interface.


SHIN
hari
meaning: needle, pointer

短針 == tanshin == hour hand
針土竜 == harimogura == spiny anteater, echidna


Left radical is 'metal' (金). Right radical is 'ten' (十), which literally means 'needle'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Ten metal meedles.'
