  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Kaomoji
Kaomoji (顔文字; literally, "face mark") is the Japanese version of a emoticon, written vertically.
Unlike emoticons however, kaomoji are primarily vertical rather than horizontal, and based on a rich component grammar, and this richness brings them much closer to ASCII art depictions of faces than the iconic shorthand of a smiley.
Because kaomoji are rotated 90 degrees from their western counterparts, some term kaomoji “verticons” - emoticons lie horizontally, while verticons stand upright.

 Interface: The Journal for Education, Community, and Values
Using the kaomoji, users "can express various nuances of tone and attitude that are hard to express in words." High school students often use these kaomoji, but usually among close friends as meanings behind these face words are meant to be interpreted in the context of the relationship.
However, without the map of the relationship, the kaomoji's meaning cannot be precisely defined.
From the m(__)m (apologizing) to the (^__^)/~~ (good-bye), the choice to use the kaomoji or to type out "gomenasai" or "sayonara" is more than just a shortcut but an act of reaffirming the relationship between intimates.

 Emoticon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most kaomoji contain Cyrillic and other foreign letters to create even more complicated expressions nearing ASCII art's level of complexity.
English anime forums use a form of kaomoji adapted for single-byte encoding.
These are usually in the format of *_*, where the asterisks indicate the eyes, and the central character, usually an underscore, is the mouth.

 Kaomoji and how to type + read Japanese fonts - Japan Forum
Well I decided to help you guys out a bit since it doesn't look like there's been a topic about this yet nor one on exactly how to type and read Japanese font (I've seen a few but were just on random posts).
I'll start out with Kaomoji since that's the main point in the topic but I'll have a section on how to type and read Japanese fonts just incase you don't know and introduce myself at the end since this is my first post.
We've all seen stuff like :-) and ^^ which are Kaomoji but not true Japanese ones we've seen on popular Japanese forums or on random stuff like anime or chat in Japanese games like Final Fantasy XI.

Since like 5 bazillion nerds log on the BBS every day, it's inevitable that many in-jokes will be created: jokes about the users, the nerd topics of the day, or about the BBS itself.
And the KAOMOJI characters serve an important function within the BBS world: it's their job to voice these in-jokes.
Like most crazy shit, the KAOMOJI can be found at the Broadway mall in Nakano: there's a whole store dedicated to ASCII art characters: it's named BAISOKU.

 Science Fair Projects - Kaomoji
Users from East Asia popularized a style of emoticons known as verticons (Japanese: 顔文字, kaomoji; literally, "face mark"), which can be understood without turning one's head to the left.
More recent examples of kaomoji contain Cyrillic and other foreign letters to create even more complicated expressions nearing ASCII art's level of complexity.
Note that for most of these, it is possible to use a period for a mouth (^.^) or leave out the mouth entirely (^^).

In Japanese they are called Kao Moji which directly translated means Face Letters.
In fact, most Japanese cell phones support e-mail and most of them have a built in shortcut list of 30 or 40 kaomoji.
Of the links Doszila posted, my favorites were this one, to play, pick a size then move your mouse over the things falling down the screen to lock on and press the left button to fire.

Penggunaan simbol emotion saat chatting, pada dasarnya digolongkan menjadi tiga jenis, yaitu singkatan, universal emotion, dan kaomoji emotion.
Sedangkan universal emotion dan kaomoji emotion, adalah penggunaan jenis-jenis karakter-karakter yang tersedia di keyboard, sehingga menyerupai ekspresi-ekspresi wajah tertentu, misalnya saja marah, sedih, dan tertawa.
Akan tetapi yang membedakan keduanya (universal dan kaomoji), simbol-simbol kaomoji, marak digunakan dan berasal dari negeri jepang.
