Oh yes, I suppose so. It also looks the same if I choose Japanese, I believe.

Japanese kanji were imported from china during the Heian period (IIRC).  So yes, they look virtually identical.

 

That kanji is , which can be pronounced as either "mu" (む) or as "yume" (ゆめ, pronounced "yuu-meh") in japanese.  It means "a dream, a vision, or an illusion."
