HO proposes excluding name of Japan Sea on map beerchug.gif

Friday, May 11, 2007 at 06:55 EDT

SEOUL The International Hydrographic Organization proposed Thursday deleting the name of the sea between Korea and Japan in its upcoming oceanographic map amid controversy over the name of the waters between the them, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported. South and North Korea and Japan have been at odds for decades over how to name the sea, which South Korea refers to as the "East Sea," while Japan calls it the "Sea of Japan."

At the ongoing IHO general meeting being held in Monaco, David Wynford Williams, chairman of the meeting, proposed to the country representatives that the name of the sea in question could be completely omitted in the fourth edition of the IHO's oceanographic chart, the Yonhap report from Monaco said. The IHO published its first oceanographic chart for the region in 1929 and has since updated it three times, but in all of them, the East Sea was marked as the Sea of Japan.

Exactly my thought.

I came in this thread because I thought maybe something had actually been decided.

Instead I found the OP to be misleading.

It is and should remain "Sea of Japan".

Does China refer to Korea Bay by this name or something else? How about renaming it East Bay?

How do you figure? There's no international organization that can say, "Whoop, heh heh, since it's called Sea of Japan those islands are gonna have to change hands." They only way that could change is through war or if Korea voluntarily gives them up. Neither case is even close to likely.

First, East Sea is appropriate in the fact that it is east of all of Asia except Japan.

Second, many bodies of water are named for the land masses that block them from the remainder of a larger body of water, so "Sea of Japan" is also appropriate.

Third, what scientific method did you use to come up with this magical 70% chance that islands, such as Dokdo, which are currently owned and maintained by Korea will be magically turned over to the Japanese?

Fourth, why can't there be a trade? Korea keeps Dokdo, and the East Sea remains the Sea of Japan. It isn't like Japan owns it, is it?

The sea east of Vietnam is already called the East Sea. Now that you mention it, though, the 동해 is the easternmost sea in the world, isn't it. How about calling it the Far East Sea? That actually sounds kinda cool.
