Did you know Emoji is a Japanese word😄 絵文字、E = means Pictures, Moji= means Letters.
Literally that’s what it is 🙂
A bit of Emoji back story. Do people use Emoji at work in Japan?
Japanese people work hard. They’re serious and there is a strict business manners in Japanese work places….
So I’ve got curious. Do people use Emojis at work!?
I’ve asked my friend working in Tokyo, if she uses emoji to their clients.
She says NO.
She uses Emojis maybe between co=workers, but never to boss or clients!
It seems to be normal that in business world in Japan they don’t use emoji – Japanese people use emojis only between friends and casual occasions. So, no business.
If you are doing business and first emails to Japanese people,
it may be safe not to use emojis 🙂 (but I personally think okay after you guys got to know each other.)

Tips of making Emoji Sandwich
I found out that Pepperoni is a good sandwich ingredient.
It’s easy to play…I mean, make sandwich with,
It’s round so perfectly fit into round sandwich!
Does your kid like pepperoni?
To be honest I was a bit surprised that kids in Denmark eat pepperoni sandwich,
because for me, as Japanese mind, it’s for pizza.
Choose which Emoji to make at first.
There are tons of Emojis out there.
Choose which ones you want to make at first. If possible, print it out so you can look at it while making it.

Use something else if you can’t find a circle shaped cutter.
I didn’t have a perfect round cookie cutter for Smile Emojis, so I simply used a cap of plastic bottle juice 😅
It fits great! Look around, try to see if you can use something else especially for round shaped cookie cutters!
Usually any cap will do a good job.
Preheat bread before cutting out
Put bread in a microwave for a few seconds.
You can cut off easier when bread is warner!
That’s it ! Emoji is really fun, I hope to make more Emoji Food for this blog, too!
