It's more likely "kanji/Chinese characters changed their forms from the original/ancient forms, not only in Japanese but also in Chinese." 繁体字 Traditional Chinese characters, which are mainly used in Taiwan or Hong Kong, are very close to Japanese kanji, especially traditional kanji. On the other hand, 簡体字 simplified Chinese characters, which are mostly used in Mainland China or Singapore, are very different. It's started to be used by the government of the People's Republic of China in 1950s.
