The Smileys(Emoticons) are used very often in the sentences of e-mails. It had begun in USA where is the internet had begun, of cource. In Japan the Smileys(Emoticons) grew differently from U.S.A, now they have various kinds. .

The difference between eastern(1 byte) Smileys(Emoticons) and Japanese ones(2 bytes) Apparently Japanese Smileys(Emoticons) are read vertically, when eastern Smileys(Emoticons) are read hosizontally. And Japanese face marks have much more kinds of variation than eastern ons. I think the reason is that while American(alphabet) letters in computer are 1 byte, Japanese letters in computer are 2 bytes, so Japanese letters can have more caracters. And also, Japanese sentences contain Chinese caracters which are phonograms, so it is easier to express and recognize something graphic with letters for Japanese people.

Second reason seems to that Japanese comics(manga) have many ways of express their feelings and situations by certain lines or graphics. And Japanese do the same things when they create face marks. So there so much Japanese Smileys(Emoticons) which are influenced by comics.

I introduce basic Japanese Smileys(Emoticons) which is used in e-mails very often in Japan. You can try that if you can enjoy to see as I explain or not. For the Smileys(Emoticons) with 2 bytes letters, people doens'nt see them by browsers of 1 byte language, so I prepared them with images (not letteres). But there are also Smileys(Emoticons) only with 1 byte. If you want, copy and paste them and use them in your e-mails !
