Cool Japanese Emoticon Helper


As you may know, American smilies are somewhat…um… simple compared to Japanese emoticons. However without Japanese IME or a Japanese keyboard its next to impossible to make them. Well here’s a site with an on screen keyboard full of the stars, dots, and everything else you could want. The site is in Japanese, but its easy to figure out whats going on. If you are serious about learning Japanese, you may want to read up on the Japanese IME. It’s a way for American keyboards to type in Kana/Kanji by typing out the Hiragana alphabet. I use it all the time, and couldn’t imagine life without it now.
