A misnomer endorsed by the Japanese government itself and supported by the majority of the gullible and uneducated population of Japan with no regards to history whatsoever.
The Japanese think that the so called "sea of japan" is the body of water between S.Korea and Japan. However, that body of water has been called the East Sea (in relation to Korea) for over 2000 years and represented in maps both in Europe as well as Japan as the EAST SEA.
Dumb Avg. Jap: Herro, i gous pishin to da shea of japaaaan!!!

Rare, educated Jap: What you idiot?

Dumb Avg. Jap: Da see of japan raer i goin pish!

Rare, educated Jap: You're a fool. The "Sea of Japan" is non existent. It's made up by our incompetent, dumb government. It's been called the East Sea for 2000 years and recorded on European maps as the East Sea since the 16th cent. People like you are the reason why our population as a whole is regarded to be dumb and ignorant.

Dumb Avg. Jap: Noooooooouuu! Eberybady call it da Shea of Japan! Japanesh Wocks!!

Rare, educated Jap: smh, smh.

The area of ocean which otherwise would simply be a part of Pacific Ocean were it not for Japan's presence. The term "East Sea," recently coined by ignorant Koreans to replace "Sea of Japan," is neither appropriate or accurate, and has obviously nothing whatsoever to do with "Japanese occupation" during WWII, which itself is a total hoax.
Sea of Japan has been there for centuries, and will be there for many more to come.
