How and When to Use the 🈲 Japanese ‘Prohibited’ Button Emoji

  • Anything forbidden has a strong sense of mystery attached to it. This means 🈲 may encompass that significance too. Hence, while referring to anything ‘mysterious’, this emoji could be an option.
  • Some instances for the previous point – “The universe is under no obligation to make sense to you 🈲or “I like being a mystery 🈲 Sometimes its the only thing new I look forward to”.
  • 🈲 is essentially the verbal and the Japanese version of the 🚫 Prohibited. Hence, you could bring this emoji into similar contexts as the symbolic emoji.
  • However, there are slight differences between the application. 🈲 ought to be primarily brought into contexts of forbiddance and not just mere restriction. For instance, “To forbid mistakes is to forbid learning 🈲”.
  • You could also use 🈲 as a statement of terror and dread. Like, “God forbid something that terrible happens! 🈲” or “She absolutely forbids that 🈲. Don’t even try”.
