Face Font in Japanese?

So I'm not sure if you know face fonts as follows; for example
  (*^_^*) smile
 (ー_ー)!! angry or annoy
 (^o^) laugh with fun or pleasure
 (T_T) cry,sad,poor 
  (>_<) pain or something


Japanese email- we  use Japanese two-byte characters.  We believe that Japanese language sometimes misunderstand even japanese ourselves at reading-particularly short sentense. We need to pay attentions writing emails.Truly we dont want to make misunderstanding each other. So that it depens on case by case, we usually use face fonts at the end of sentense. just email or mobile mail between friends or family.
But never use at work and official of course.

anyway, you already remeber Kawaii (Japanese) -pretty,cute,

"Kawaii (*^_^*)”

On writing in Japanese;
When you say   'Glad to ...' 
we say 'Ureshii!!'(Japanese)   add to (^o^)
when you say ' I enjoy...'  we say 'Tanoshii!!'(Japanese)
 we use (^o^)or\(^o^)/  

but not exactly rule

I guess that face fonts can help to express our emotions more to others how we feel clearly.

Do you have any face fonts of one-byte characters?

I enjoyed this lesson! \(^o^)/

It is so cute! We don't have so many of these 'face fonts', and I am not good at them anyway. I really like the one above - thanks!

Japanese face fonts make a lot of sense. I had a Japanese teacher (sensei) who described that in looking at a person's face to read emotion, the Japanese looked more at the eyes while the Americans looked more at the mouth. I can see that in these face fonts. Arigato!

Hi Mami,
It's fun to see that you use different emotion symbols in Japanese. Fun to learn a few words, too!
We sometimes misunderstand each other in English emails also, so we may add "emoticons" to show that something is meant to be funny or clever.
:) for a smile
;) for clever - a wink
:( for sad.
I'm sure others know more of these symbols than I do!
