Popular text faces known as the “Lenny face” ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and “shrug face” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Some emoticons use keyboards that most Western keyboards do not have access to. For example, kaomoji is technically what most people are referring to when they say “Japanese emoticons”.  Kaomoji are text-based emoticons that are crafted by utilizing Japanese and other 2-byte characters. Western keyboards don’t have default or easy access to complex characters from different languages unless an app or program is used. English and other similar language keyboards are limited to specific letters and punctuation marks; However, Japanese keyboards can be used to create abstract 2-byte characters and emoticons.

An example if this is the smiley face. The Western version of the smiley face is much more simple and straight forward compared to the complex characters of a Japanese keyboard:
