Condiment Face

When I first came to Japan, people told me that there were two types of Japanese men’s faces (typical facial characteristics): those with a “shoyu face” and those with a “sauce face”.

The shoyu face has a more “typical” Japanese characteristics, while the sauce face has more pronounced features. The chart above adds the “salt face” (a more “Asian” appearance), a “vinegar face” (even less pronounced features than the salt face), a “sugar face” (boyish), a “miso face” (rounder, less sharp features than the sauce face), a “mayonnaise face” (not quite as boyish and sweet as the sugar face), a “ketchup face” (something between miso and sauce, apparently). And the last is the “olive oil face”, which is what all the young “idols” seem to want to look like today.
