Best kawaii Japanese smileys (kaomoji)

Best kawaii Japanese smileys (kaomoji) ヾ(●ω●)ノ

Today I’m sharing a list of my favorite and cutest japanese smileys or 顔文字 (kaomoji). Kaomoji emoticons are similar to smileys, but they usually contain various Japanese characters and because of this are capable of express more emotions than traditional western emoticons. Kaomoji is combined of two words:  かお kao “face” and 文字 もじ moji  “letters, writing”.

If you are onn iOS device, download Kaomoji app to have them as a keyboard.

Adventure time! ԅ(¯ิϖ ¯ิԅ)

Kaomoji are now used in many Asian countries, though they originated in Japan because of the use of Japanese hiragana and katakana characters. Check out this list.

Post your kaomoji in the comment section, and I’m gonna add them to the list.
