I used this website and noticed the left hand side looked like the child radical 子, then counted the strokes as 10 and found this 孫{まご}. Which has a kun-yomi that matches the furigana next to it as まご, the website lists the meaning as grandchild/descendent

  • This website is super helpful, though sometimes it does take a little playing around to identify exactly which radicals the kanji is classified with, and exactly how many strokes their are. Though usually one or two radicals is enough to lower the amount of possible kanji from thousands to tens
