Very good question.  Apparently, that Kanji isn't in our system, most likely as it's no longer used and the kun-yomi reading is used when this word is used.

See Masako's answer. It's correct.

Just to follow up Taylor's answer.


Actually, 々 is NOT considered as a kanji, but it is a kind of symbol.  It is used to repeat the kanji before it.  For example,

人々 (ひとびと) people

木々 (きぎ) trees

I believe that is the reason we don't have it in our dictionary.  But it is a very useful symbol, and you'd better learn it!
