  • Hey guys! Today I want to make a video about Japanese emoticons, or KAO MOJI.

  • KAO means face, and MOJI means character, so literally "face character."

  • I love Japanese emoticons because they're so cute and

  • they're so varied from what we can make with our keyboards.

  • Like you can make a little emoticon man who's writing a note.

  • I don't know where I would ever use that but it's adorable!

  • But the issue for me is that it's really difficult to make Japanese emoticons

  • on our keyboards because we don't have a lot of those special characters.

  • We either have to find it somewhere on the internet

  • and copy it or you have to know the alt code.

  • If you don't know what an alt code is, that's

  • where if you hold down the alt key on your computer and then you type in a series of

  • numbers on your numpad then like special characters will like pop up.

  • So like fun fact! If you hold the alt key and you press the number 3 you get a heart! ♥

  • So to be able to type those special characters you literally

  • have to memorize a series of numbers, which is too complicated!

  • So today I'm going to give you lots of tips and tricks on using a Japanese keyboard so

  • you can make emoticons more easily and use them on my videos more often!!

  • Because I want to see them more often because they're so cute!

  • So let's get to it!

  • So the first thing you have to do if you haven't already done it is enable the Japanese keyboard

  • on your computer.

  • And to do that for Windows you go to control panel, and depending on

  • your version of Windows you'll have to find where it says "Language and Region" and then

  • get to "Change keyboards."

  • Click on that, click "change keyboards," click add, and then you search down for Japanese.

  • And then when you add Japanese the keyboard you want is "Micrsoft IME."

  • And then you click okay, okay, and then it'll show up down here.

  • And down here's where you can switch between using Japanese and English.

  • And we're going to be using Japanese.

  • If you have a Mac I'm sorry, you'll have to Google how to do that on your computer.

  • And for like my 20 non-Japanese Linux users, you

  • guys are smart enough to figure it out yourself.

  • Okay, now tip 1!

  • If you have a Japanese computer there will be a button up here that will let you

  • switch between English and Japanese characters, but for us, we don't have that.

  • So, you don't want to have to constantly go down here to

  • click and switch back and forth between the two, so there's an option that will let you

  • set some keys so you can change it on your keyboard.

  • And on mine the way it came was I just hold the shift button and

  • then press caps lock, and as you can see it switches back and forth.

  • So, that's a really quick way to do it so you don't have to

  • be constantly moving your mouse around and clicking places.

  • So how you actually type Japanese characters

  • is you literally just type it out in romaji.

  • So, "u-r-e-s-h-i-i-" and you click the space bar to lock it that word in.

  • And then if you click the space bar again a menu will show up and it will let you

  • select which kanji you want to use, or at the bottom it usually has katakana.

  • So you can scroll back and forth between them.

  • And that's how Japanese people type kanji.

  • And some kanji have a lot of different options, so for example, KATA.

  • You have 12 different options that you can choose from here.

  • And it also works for special characters--not just kanji.

  • So for example, in English, for quotation marks all

  • we have are these (unless you change your font).

  • But, in Japanese if you do quotation marks, you have 8

  • different quotation marks that you can choose from.

  • AND it also works if you type out the name of a special character!

  • So for example, triangle is SANKAKU.

  • And as you can see, a triangle comes up first because that's what I use the most.

  • As you can see, just by typing SANKAKU I have 6 different special characters to choose

  • from other than just the kanji.

  • Another example is like the degree symbol.

  • In Japanese that's DO. So I type in DO, and I have a little eye!

  • BUT it also works with letters from other languages!

  • So for example, in Cyrillic you can type out the letter д

  • in Japanese like this, and you can get this little mouth!

  • Whoops!

  • DO. And it also works for Greek, so like SHIGUMA.

  • And now you have a little surprised person!

  • So you just have to play around with the different character options they have on their

  • keyboard or figure out the names of different characters and you'll be able to type them.

  • Ohmygash why can't I spell SANKAKU?!

  • And it's a little man taking a bath! He's so cute!

  • And you can look up the names of different kanji and see if any of them work for you in faces.

  • So you really just have to play around.

  • Like SARA, that means plate.

  • And it makes kind of a scary little mouth. SANKAKU~

  • I'm sorry.

  • But Rachel, I don't know the names of these characters in Japanese! What do I do?!

  • Well, that is where Wikipedia comes into play.

  • You can always just Google it and try to figure out the name, OR you can

  • go to Wikipedia and then for example like look up the Greek alphabet.

  • And translation tip!

  • A pretty good way to translate things is using the Wikipedia

  • page and then just switching the language over to Japanese.

  • It doesn't always work. I have seen some pages that did not translate well into Japanese.

  • But for this one it does work, so for the Greek alphabet.

  • So here you can see the little characters and you see the name of them in Japanese.

  • So this is all you have to type.

  • So for like epsilon--IPUSHIRON.

  • And you get a little poochy face! Poochy face man~

  • And he's happy. Aww look how happy he is. Poochy face~

  • So now that you've learned some useful tips and you have my little bank of characters

  • down in the description that you can use, I want to see the BEST kao moji that you can

  • come up with!

  • And to my Japanese viewers since you guys should be veterans I expect to see

  • EXTRA special kao moji from you!

  • So I'm really excited to see what you guys can come up with! So see you next time!

Hey guys! Today I want to make a video about Japanese emoticons, or KAO MOJI.
