We construct a theory for Josephson junction with multiple tunneling channels. We focus on two situations, i.e., a heterotic junction composed of two-gap-superconductor, insulator, and one-gap-superconductor, and a grain-boundary junction formed by two identical multi-gap superconductors. Then, we show that the magnetic field distribution of the Josephson vortex for ±s-wave superconductivity is much more enlarged than that for s-wave without sign change between the order parameters. We display such anomalous vortices and suggest how to evaluate the enlargement.
