Found this page while reading an article (english) about the various Japanese character encodings (JIS-X, shift-JIS, Unicode, etc) and the general dificulty of representing Han characters on a computer.  It's a list of new characters (called emoji) NTT/docomo has added for text messaging on their phones. (page in japanese, emoji language-neutral)

Given how much text messaging is used over there, I wonder if these emoji will become a normal part of the language in a few decades...

not a torch or a match in your inventory.
