Non sense - east sea is what one does when standing on the Yokohama beach and looking at the rising sun. Sanitizing the designation - Sea of Japan - is but a ineffective attempt to sooth a damaged cultural ego.

Even China and Russia call it Sea of Japan. In China, the "East Sea" refers to the East China Sea.

Only one country insists on calling it a name that only makes any sense to themselves.

”found” is funny. The entire event was filmed by the allied forces when they sunk them and their positions were registered. Everything about those vessels is documented and they were nothing but iron hulls when they were scuttled

In Japan to call it East Sea makes no sense as it is not to the East!

Yeah, this is pretty common knowledge for anyone with a basic knowledge of history. It probably only took them 20 minutes to find them based on the data from 70 odd years ago. Anything to get a bit of news buzz.

East Sea... the subs at the bottom of the ocean punctuate that with exclamations.
