Writing love in japanese is represented as the kanji symbol 愛 which means love and affection. It takes 13 strokes to create the kanji for love. The japanese family crests or mons have a similar role as the english family crests. The japanese symbols, or mons are a coat of arms used to represent families and individuals, and more recently, businesses and institutions. there is little known about the origin of these crests and the japanese family crest symbols, but it is commonly believed that the tradition started. These kaomoji emoticons are so in love that they have hearts for eyes. Everything they see must be completely tinted with love. You can use either a black heart (♥) or a white one (♡) for these loving eyes. I wonder what these emotes are in. The japanese sometimes use the english word love as well, though it is pronounced as rabu （ラブ） (since there is no l or v sound in japanese). A love letter is usually called rabu retaa （ラブレター）. rabu shiin （ラブシーン） is a love scene.
