The Josephson current-phase relations in d-wave/d-wave superconductor junctions in the tunnel limit are studied using the two-dimensional extended-Hubbard model. The order parameters are determined in a self-consistent way within the Bogoliubov-de Gennes theory. In this study, we calculate the case of (110) oriented junction which have the atomic scale roughness on their interfaces. In uniform junctions, the anomalous current-phase relation obtained within a quasiclassical theory is qualitatively reproduced. On the other hand, in the junctions with an interface impurity, that anomalous relation disappears.
