This study proposes a novel method with which Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) resources on the Web can be effectively matched and connected. The three countries share Chinese characters even though Japan and Korea have their own language. Utilizing the Unihan database, which covers more than 45,000 characters commonly used by the three countries, we show that the proposed method outperforms the traditional method based on string matching in finding similar characters and words used in these countries. The results represent a first step towards overcoming the multilingual barrier in semantically interlinking Asian LOD resources.
