the current study explores the similarity effect of kanji orthographic to 53 studentsat Japanese education departmentwhile reading and writing kanji. This research employed qualitative method and error analysis technique. Kanji studied is a combined kanji of 2 kanji (nijijukugo). The similarity effect of graphical kanji to reading and writing errors is classified into 2 categories, (1) misspelling of target kanji which then affect meaning, (2) non-kanji errors type. This study indicates that effect of orthographic similarity on process of understanding kanji on cognition of learners involves various information contained in kanji i.e. graffiti, radical, kanji component, pronunciation, and meaning relationships. Existence of this relationship proves it is also important to conduct research from effects of phonological, morphological, or semantic point of kanji lexical. This research has implications for kanji teaching materials within more attention to effect of similarity between kanji, especially when individual kanji formsmanycombined kanji of 2 kanji or more called jukugo.
