Kaomoji — Japanese Emoji

Kaomoji is essentially Japanese smiles designed through the use of traditional hieroglyphs, dots, commas, line bars, and other symbols. These digital smiles help make online communication filled with bright emotions. The word «kaomoji» is considered a synonym with Japanese emoji. Japan is a country of extremely emotional and creative people.

Behind the appearance of a traditional, seemingly reserved society stands the bright individuality of each person. When online chats and messengers appeared, people needed tools to expand the range of feelings that dry text symbols cannot convey. To eliminate this problem, ever-inventive Japanese Internet users came up with a nifty idea to create Japanese emoji.

The Japanese went their own way. Kaomoji is the language of drawings. The origins of this intricate art lie in manga and anime when the authors manage to convey emotions using easy-to-understand drawings. Sometimes this is an utterly primitive and inaccurate drawing style. When it comes to online chats and websites, the Japanese use a great number of symbols that are not generally used in the traditional Latin or Cyrillic alphabet. Kaomoji exploits the most comprehensive character set collecting letters and signs from different languages of the world.

Positive emoji

The most famous Japanese emoji are those that express joy – no other icons can convey a good mood, cheerfulness, and delight like positive Kaomoji. Due to a great variety, these emoticons allow for demonstrating elation in the most diversified ways and literally infecting a talk partner with positivity.

Joy

Joyful Kaomoji is characterized by the eyes placed high. The symbols ^,  ̄, ´ as well as`, are generally used to form these joyful Japanese emoticons. A mouth also has an important role when creating a joyful Japanese emoticon. Young people prefer to use the ω (omega) symbol for the mouths of joyous Kaomoji, and for a good reason because emoticons with such an element are considered the most kawaii (very cute). Other symbols are also used to depict a smile including ∀, ▽, and other mouth-like signs. To enhance the expressiveness of the emoticon so that it completely conveys the elevated spirits of the sender, users also include additional elements such as asterisks, tears of joy among others. Just have a look at these sweet emoticons – can anyone stay sad or indifferent when eyeing such cute things?

Love

An unusual way to express your feelings for your significant other in a single text message is to insert one of numerous truly kawaii Japanese in-love emoticons!

(ノ´ з `)ノ(♡-_-♡)(─‿‿─)♡
(´ ω `♡)ღ˘⌣˘ღ)╰(*´︶`*)╯♡
(≧◡≦) ♡(♡μ_μ)( ̄ε ̄@)
(´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡♡( ◡‿◡ )(♡°▽°♡)

(♡˙︶˙♡)(*¯ ³¯*)♡ (´♡‿♡`)
(°◡°♡)(っ˘з(˘⌣˘ ) ♡❤ (ɔˆз(ˆ⌣ˆc)

Japanese couples most often use the heart symbol (♡) in everyday online correspondence. Various combinations with this symbol are also very popular, for example, ノ ~ ♡, which means air-kissing. A thrown kiss is sometimes followed with the letter combination chu that means the sound of a kiss in Japan.

The integral elements of Japanese emoticons that show the love of the sender for the recipient are the symbols of * and o (means blush). These add-ons can convey the bashfulness and shyness of a person, which are typical at the very beginning of a romantic relationship. Often these emoticons are used with the depiction of hands: /, \, ノ, ノ, ヽ – these signs mean covering the face in an attempt to hide embarrassment.

Also, the symbol ε is also used with the symbols of hands denoting «pouting lips». This combination of symbols represents the desire to hug and kiss – a great option for couples involved in a long-distance relationship. Curiously, the Japanese themselves claim that this type of emoticon is most often used by perverts of all kinds.

Embarrassment

Has your conversationalist surprised you or made an unusual offer? Respond to your partner with an embarrassed emoticon! This type of kaomoji will perfectly reflect your feelings.

(*/▽\*)(⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)(//ω//)
( ◡‿◡ *)(ᵔ.ᵔ) (*ノ∀`*)
(//▽//)(*μ_μ)(o-_-o)
(*ノωノ)(*/_\)(*/。\)
(*/ω\)(o^ ^o)(⌒_⌒;)

To express embarrassment, it is better to use combinations of symbols ;, which signify drops of sweat on the face when hearing unexpectedly good news (or vice versa). It is also appropriate to use symbols that speak for the blush on the cheeks – these include * or o. You can also try to create a smiley face covering the face because of embarrassment. If you love flirting with your partner, this set of Japanese emoticons is the most suitable for you!

Compassion

Has your interlocutor got into trouble, but you, unfortunately, cannot help with anything, but you sincerely want to express your sympathy and show your understanding? Compassion emoticons are made just for you! For the most complete expression of the feelings you are currently experiencing, it is best to use a combination of two kaomoji, one of which will look upset while another will calm him down. In the first case, it is wise to use emoji from the «sadness» category. The second part of the complex emoticon should be the symbol denoting a comforting, stroking hand: ノ’ or ヾ. Besides, in the chapter of compassion emoji, you can find one that symbolizes a friendly shoulder of support.

(ノ_<。)ヾ(´ ▽ ` )ヽ( ̄ω ̄(。。 )ゝ(´-ω-`( _ _ )
(ノ_;)ヾ(´ ∀ ` ) (; ω ; )ヾ(´∀`* )ヽ(~_~(・_・ )ゝ
(*´ー)ノ(ノд`)(o・_・)ノ”(ノ_<、)
(っ´ω`)ノ(╥ω╥)
(; ω ; )ヾ(´∀`* ) (*´ I `)ノ゚(ノД`゚)゚。 ρ(- ω -、)ヾ( ̄ω ̄; )

This type of kaomoji will perfectly express your sympathetic attitude toward the recipient’s problem as well as your desire to become a sort of shoulder-to-cry-on, which your partner can lean on and share all their sorrows and problems with you.

Negative emotions

If you are disappointed with the information received, or your interlocutor has somehow offended you, you can send them a discontented kaomoji. Rest assured, after receiving an angry smiley face, your partner will immediately reconsider their behavior towards you!

Discontent

The main feature of the negative Japanese emoticon is the wrinkled face.  There is a special set of characters used to reflect this condition. The eyes are the mirrors of your feelings, so that negative emotions place emphasis on the eye expression.  Such emoticons exploit symbols > <. Besides that, the usage of the # symbol denotes a face frowned with dissatisfaction, which will significantly add up to the overall effect. Slight discontent can also be indicated by eye symbols, for example like this: ¬¬ or  ̄ ̄. Special attention should be given when choosing a mouth symbol for expressing your displeasure. Grudge Kaomoji formed with the symbols mentioned above is often found in various anime and manga works.

(;⌣̀_⌣́) (#><) (; ̄Д ̄)
☆o(><;)○( ̄  ̄|||)( ̄□ ̄」)
(# ̄0 ̄) (# ̄ω ̄)
(¬_¬;)
(︶︹︺) ( ̄ヘ ̄) <( ̄ ﹌  ̄)>

( ̄︿ ̄) ヾ(  ̄O ̄)ツ (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞
(>﹏<)(⇀‸↼‶) (눈_눈)
(--_--)o(>< )o 凸( ̄ヘ ̄)

Anger

If your partner in conversations behaves awfully, tells rude words, or humiliates you using acid remarks, sending angry kaomoji is the best way to express the frustration and irritation you are currently experiencing. Since they say that our eyes can dart flashes of anger, it is best to use the Japanese emoticon with symbols that denote the wrathful gaze. For this, the most appropriate characters are `and ´ or ` and ´. Here is an example:

(・`ω´・) (`ー´) ┌∩┐(◣_◢)┌∩┐
(`皿´#) (#`Д´) ( ` ω ´ )
ヽ( `д´*)ノヽ(`⌒´メ)ノ 凸(`△´#)
ψ( ` ∇ ´ )ψ ( `ε´ )ヾ(`ヘ´)ノ゙
ヽ(‵﹏´)ノ凸( ` ロ ´ )凸(╬`益´)
Σ(▼□▼メ)٩(╬ʘ益ʘ╬)۶ (҂ `з´ )
↑_(ΦwΦ)Ψ(ノಥ益ಥ)ノ(҂` ロ ´)凸
(凸ಠ益ಠ)凸٩(ఠ益ఠ)۶(ノ°益°)ノ

It is especially important not to confuse the position of the slope in the symbols. A bright example of comparison would be the symbols `´ and ´`. In the latter case, the combination of such symbols will mean «kind eyes» – just the opposite of what you are feeling right now. Instead of producing the desired effect, this can just baffle your partner.

To enhance the intensity of emotions and fully convey your indignation, you can add the # symbol to your kaomoji that will designate forehead wrinkles. In addition, メ or ╬ symbols are used to express the ultimately wrinkled face blazed with anger. Also, you can add a symbol denoting a hand: 凸. This pictogram means a very vulgar gesture. You can also use symbols looking like sharp claws, for example, ψ. To step up the effect, the symbols 皿 or 益 are also appropriate – they denote an animal grin.

Sadness

Life is not always rosy, and sometimes you need to share your sadness and melancholy with others. If you cannot do it personally, you can express your condition in a text using suitable emoticons. Kaomoji symbolizing sadness will help you with the expression of your sorrowful feelings. The most common elements of these sad emoticons are T T  ,; ;,  > <  indicating tearful eyes. Other symbols denoting eyes covered with hands can also be used, for example, / \ and ノ ヽ.

 

(ಥ﹏ಥ) (。•́︿•̀。) o(〒﹏〒)o
(T_T) (>_<) (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩)っ
。゚・ (>﹏<) ・゚。・゚・(。>ω<。)・゚・
(ノω・、)
(。T ω T。) (つω`。) (/ˍ・、)
(ノ_<、) (╥﹏╥) (╥_╥)
(╯_╰) ( ╥ω╥ ) ( ゚,_ゝ`)
(个_个) (╯︵╰,) (。╯︵╰。)
(ノД`) (-ω-、) (´-ω-`)

If you are sad, feel free to send an emoticon of this kind to your partner, to whom you want to unlock your heart. Seeing such a kaomoji, a true friend will quickly come to help you.

Pain

Perhaps, the person you are chatting with tells you about recent injuries or just sends you a video where somebody gets hurt. If you are a susceptible individual, the best way to demonstrate your reaction is choosing an appropriate Japanese emoji standing for pain. The most common pictograms conveying physical sufferings are > <, which are often combined with other figures:  ⌒☆. Just have a look:

(×﹏×) ☆(#××) (+_+)
[ ± _ ± ](x_x)⌒☆
(×_×)⌒☆
x_x(×_×) ~(>_<~)
☆⌒(> _ <) ☆⌒(>。<) (☆_@)

Also, the so-called «stunned» emoticons are quite popular to speak for an ache. The X-like elements are often used to create such emoticons. In general, there are many variations of spelling aching kaomoji, as you can see from above.

Fear

If your companion has scared you with something, why not respond to them with a corresponding emoticon? In this case, a list of kaomoji symbolizing fear is at your command.

\(〇_o)/(・人・) (;;;*_*)
(/。\) (ノ_ヽ) (″ロ゛)
(ノωヽ) (/ω\)
〜(><)〜
Σ(°△°|||)︴{{ (>_<) }} \(º □ º l|l)/

Forward slashes and backslashes are often used to compose emoticons depicting fear, sometimes with the inclusion of additional symbols that give the impression of a face covered with hands because of fear. It will also be appropriate to choose symbols that denote shouting, waving hands, and wide-open eyes as you can see from the examples presented above.

Neutral emotions

Is your companion telling about nonsense, and you are tired of it? Send them a kaomoji that symbolizes indifference. Perhaps, after that, such a dull beggar will reconsider their manner of communication and start writing more meaningful and interesting messages.

Throwing hands up

The main component of kaomoji, epitomizing indifference, is the symbol of «don’t care eyes»: ー ー or ˇˇ. A greater effect is produced when adding symbols depicting the hands thrown up. These include ┐ ┌ or ╮ ╭. You can also use elements that denote waving hands, such as combinations of forward and backslashes.

┐( ̄~ ̄)┌┐( ̄ヘ ̄)┌ ┐( ´ д ` )┌
ヽ(ー_ー )ノ╮(︶▽︶)╭ ╮( ˘ 、 ˘ )╭
ヽ(´ー` )┌ ┐(︶▽︶)┌ ╮(︶︿︶)╭
┐(‘~` )┌ ╮( ̄_ ̄)╭ ╮( ̄~ ̄)╭
┐( ̄∀ ̄)┌ ┐( ˘_˘ )┌ ヽ(  ̄д ̄)ノ
ヽ(ˇヘˇ)ノ¯\_(ツ)_/¯┐( ˘ 、 ˘ )┌

Bewilderment

There is a wide range of kaomoji depicting puzzlement. The main symbol here is the one denoting «empty eyes», which look like ・ ・. The use of auxiliary symbols ; or 〃is also possible. In this combination of symbols, it will not go amiss if using marks indicating thinking (…), spreading hands (┐ ┌, ╮ ╭), as well as the head reclined upon the hand (ゞ).

(ーー;)(◎ ◎)ゞ (•ิ_•ิ)?
(@_@)(・・;)ゞ Σ( ̄。 ̄ノ)
(・・ ) ?( ̄. ̄;) ╮( ̄ω ̄;)╭
( ̄_ ̄)・・・ (・_・;) ┐('~`;)┌
(・_・ヾ ┐('~`;)┌ σ( ̄、 ̄〃)
( ̄~ ̄;) (-_-;)・・・( ̄ω ̄;)

Doubt

Are you suspicious of what your opponent is saying? Use kaomoji that express doubt, they look like these ¬ ¬, ¬ ¬. It is also suitable to use arrows.

(¬‿¬ )(¬‿¬ )(¬ ¬ )
(¬_¬) (→_→) (¬ ¬)
(¬_¬ ) (↼_↼) (←_←)

Surprise

To exhibit surprise, you can use signs symbolizing an open in surprise mouth and an amazed look: o, 〇, ロ and O O and ⊙ ⊙ respectively. To create contrast, the size of the mouth can be reduced compared to the eyes.

(⊙_⊙) (°ロ°) ! ∑(O_O;)
w(°o°)w ヽ(°〇°)ノ (o_O)
(o_O) ! ( : ౦ ‸ ౦ : ) Σ(O_O)
(O_O;)(□_□)Σ(°ロ°)
(O.O)Σ(□_□)о_0

Different actions

Hi!

Kaomoji is perfect for saying hi or goodbye in an unusual way. The symbols used for greetings/ farewell include forward or backslashes. The most creative variations involve the use of ノ or ノcharacters. If you want the emoticon to wave with a hand, you can use quotation marks in combination with a slash.

 

( ̄▽ ̄)ノ (´• ω •`)ノ (^-^*)/
ヾ(*'▽'*) (^-^*)/ (@´ー`)ノ゙
(´• ω •`)ノ ( ° ∀ ° )ノ゙
( ´ ∀ ` )ノ
(°▽°)/ ヾ(*'▽'*)
ヾ(☆▽☆)
( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
(^0^)ノ ~ヾ(・ω・)
(・∀・)ノ ヾ(^ω^*)
(*°ー°)ノ
(・_・)ノ (o´ω`o)ノ ヾ(☆'∀'☆)
( ̄ω ̄)/ ( ´ ω ` )ノ゙ (⌒ω⌒)ノ
(o^ ^o)/
( ̄▽ ̄)/
(o´▽`o)ノ

Hugs

To depict hugs, you can exploit the symbols indicating outstretched arms looking like つつ.

(づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ (⊃。•́‿•̀。)⊃ ⊂(´• ω •`⊂)
⊂(・ω・*⊂) (つ . •́ _ʖ •̀ .)つ (つ≧▽≦)つ
(つ✧ω✧)つ (っಠ‿ಠ)っ ⊂( ̄▽ ̄)⊃
(づ ◕‿◕ )づ
(づ◡﹏◡)づ
(・⊂( ´ ▽ ` )⊃

Eyewink

The winking emoticons always look very cute and are also quite easy to create. Kaomoji in this case uses symbols representing the left and right eyes twinkling. Just have a look at these lovely smiley faces:

(^_~) (>ω^) (^_<)〜☆
(^_<) ( ゚o⌒) (~人^)
(^人<)〜☆ (^_−)☆ (^_-)≡☆
(^_-) ☆⌒(≧▽​° ) (・ω<)☆
(^ω~)
( -_・)
☆⌒(ゝ。∂)

Apologies

When depicting an excuse in Japan, senders generally use kaomoji, symbolizing the traditional bow. Apologizing symbols are those that show downcast eyes: _ _,….

m(_ _)m (シ_ _)シ m(. .)m
<(_ _)>
人(_ _*) (*_ _)人
m(_ _;m) (m;_ _)m
(シ. .)シ

Nose bleed

In the different manga, bleeding from the nose is created through the use of versatile symbols such as i, ハ, ;, 〃

(* ̄ii ̄) ( ̄ハ ̄*) \( ̄ハ ̄)
(^་།^)
(^〃^) ( ̄ ¨ヽ ̄)
( ̄ ; ̄) ( ̄ ;; ̄)

Hide-and-seek

When we want to show that our kaomoji is hiding from someone, it is applicable to demonstrate an emoticon peeping out from a wall or another hidey-hole.

|・ω・)ヘ(・_| |ω・)ノ
|_・)|・д・)ノ |д・)
┬┴┬┴┤(・_├┬┴┬┴ |ʘ‿ʘ)╯ ┬┴┬┴┤(・_├┬┴┬┴

Typing

To show a typing emoticon, it is suitable to introduce the letter of the Greek alphabet «phi» (φ) that symbolizes the process of writing a letter. To enhance the illusion of the writing process, it is recommended to add a couple of dots to this emoji.

__φ(..)(  ̄ー ̄)φ__ __φ(。。)
__φ(..;)ヾ( `ー´)シφ__ __〆( ̄ー ̄ )
....φ(・∀・*) ( . .)φ__ ___〆(・∀・)

Hurrying

Do you want to show haste? Make use of these symbols: ε, =, ミ and C. These elements are perfect to demonstrate the rapid pace of what you have described in your message.

☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(; ̄▽ ̄)┘ ε===(っ≧ω≦)っ
ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ=3=3=3 ε=ε=┌( >_<)┘ ─=≡Σ((( つ><)つ
。。。ミヽ(。><)ノ
C= C= C= C= C=┌(;・ω・)┘ (---).=3=3=3

Sleep

In Japanese Internet culture, it is very easy to signify sleep. All it takes is typing the snorting symbol zzzZZ… . You even can put your sleeping kaomoji onto a kind of pillow that it created using these signs: ([ ]). Sweet dreams look like this:

[(--)]..zzZ( ̄o ̄) zzZZzzZZ (_ _*) Z z z
(-_-) zzZ (( _ _ ))..zzzZZ (x . x) ~~zzZ
(∪。∪)。。。zzZ ( ̄ρ ̄)..zzZZ (-.-)...zzz

Animals

Cat

Cats and kittens in Japan are highly treasured and considered exceptionally cute and lovely creatures. This explains why there are a lot of symbols depicting cats: different manga, anime, nyaka- nyaka (nyaa means «meow» in Japanese) where you can meet a great variety of feline ears and tails. Kaomoji depicting a cat are numerous and highly sweet. To create this cute emoticon, the Japanese use = = for whiskers and ^ ^ for ears. The results are fascinating.

(=①ω①=) ( =ω=)..nyaa(=^・ェ・^=)
(=^・ω・^=) (= ; ェ ; =) (=`ω´=)
(=^‥^=) ( =ノωヽ=)
(=⌒‿‿⌒=)
(=^ ◡ ^=) (=^-ω-^=) ヾ(=`ω´=)ノ”
(^• ω •^) (/ =ω=)/ ฅ(•ㅅ•❀)ฅ
ฅ(• ɪ •)ฅ(^=◕ᴥ◕=^) (^◔ᴥ◔^)
ଲ(ⓛ ω ⓛ)ଲ (^˵◕ω◕˵^)
(^◕ᴥ◕^)

Bear

A bear is fairly easy to recognize in kaomoji by its distinctive muzzle (エ) or ears ʕ ʔ.

ʕ •̀ o •́ ʔ ʕ •̀ ω •́ ʔ ʕ •ᴥ• ʔ
⊂(´(ェ)ˋ)⊃ (/-(エ)-\) (/°(エ)°)/
ʕ ᵔᴥᵔ ʔ( ´(エ)ˋ ) (* ̄(エ) ̄*)
(/(エ)\)(/ ̄(エ) ̄)/
ヽ( ̄(エ) ̄)ノ
⊂( ̄(エ) ̄)⊃ ヽ( ˋ(エ)´ )ノ ( ̄(エ) ̄)

Dog

A kaomoji dog has characteristic ears that are created through the use of these signs: (∪ ∪) which are also the boundaries of a dog’s face. A man’s best friend in kaomoji looks like the following:

∪^ェ^∪ ∪・ω・∪ ∪ ̄- ̄∪
U^皿^U UTェTU U^ェ^U
∪・ェ・∪
V●ᴥ●V

Rabbit

Rabbits are a priori very cute even if they are depicted as Japanese emoticons. To create the rabbit with symbols, it is necessary to use x for the face and / \for ears. This is how it actually looks:

/(=・ x ・=)\ /(≧ x ≦)\ /(・ × ・)\
/(^ × ^)\ /(>×<)\ /(=´x`=)\
/(^ x ^)\
/(˃ᆺ˂)\

Pig

If you want to draw a pig with keyboard symbols, use a trivial Japanese emoticon simply adding the characters (oo), (00) or (ω) to it as a snout.

( ´(00)ˋ ) \( ̄(oo) ̄)/ ( ̄(ω) ̄)
ヽ( ˋ(00)´ )ノ ( ´(oo)ˋ ) (ˆ(oo)ˆ)
。゚(゚´(00)`゚)゚。 ( ̄(00) ̄)

Bird

The main principle of portraying the bird in kaomoji is using the beak symbols Θ or θ.

( ̄Θ ̄) \( ˋ Θ ´ )/ (`・Θ・´)
(・θ・) ( ˋ Θ ´ ) (・Θ・)
(◉Θ◉)ヾ( ̄◇ ̄)ノ〃

Fish

Fish emoticons take a special place in the kaomoji arsenal as seafood is an integral part of Japanese cuisine. Use << or 彡to depict the tail and)) for the fish gills. A few examples are below:

(°))<< >^)))<~~ ≧( ° ° )≦
(°)#))<< ζ°)))彡 <・ )))><<

Spider

Create a spider using slashes for paws and adding some pairs of eyes – the spider is done!

/╲/\╭(ఠఠ益ఠఠ)╮/\╱\ /╲/\╭[ ᴼᴼ ౪ ᴼᴼ]╮/\╱\ /╲/\╭(ರರ⌓ರರ)╮/\╱\

Other variations

Friends

Friendship is great! Friendship takes a special place in the arsenal of kaomoji. To show friendship through symbols, it is enough to depict several Japanese emoticons holding each other by hand: 人, メ, 八 and 爻.

ヾ(・ω・)メ(・ω・)ノ ヽ(∀° )人( °∀)ノ ヽ( ⌒o⌒)人(⌒-⌒ )ノ

Enemies

In Japanese Internet culture, the term «enemy» is viewed as something unserious, ridiculous, or funny. To create such a character, depict a kick in combination with the signs ☆, ミ, 彡, and also Σ. Losing consciousness is shown with symbols x x.

Food

The Japanese adore eating and drinking much. Japanese emoticons doe reflect this. Symbols such as 旦, 口, 且 are used to represent food and drinks in messages.

Invent your own kaomoji!

Kaomoji is eclectic and numerous. Tens of thousands of combinations of symbols give more than enough room for imagination. By playing with different symbols, you can express not only certain emotions, but also portray various actions, and even tell a real story. Japanese emoticons are classified according to the depicted emotion, object, or action.

Kaomoji is also characterized by using versatile hieroglyphs, which renders an additional shade of meaning to the smiley face. On our website, we gathered the most complete collection of Japanese emoticons from different corners of the Internet. We strived to make our website user-friendly and easy to navigate. You can click on any emoticon, and it will be copied automatically.

Feel free to use the kaomoji that you like. Combine elements of several different Japanese emoticons and create your own unique variations!
