These japanese kanji are very similar to Chinese characters (hierogliphs)

They are actually Chinese characters:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji
etimologically hieroglyph means "(sacred) carving", and common use is for logographic characters used in the ancient times, like the Egyptian ones, though "hieroglyphs":
http://dictionary.re...owse/hieroglyph
http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Hieroglyph
http://english.stack...ng-or-to-any-wr
may be used, technically they are logographs or logograms:
http://en.wikipedia....iki/Logographic
or, better, ideograms:
