Dear Google Map Administrators,
Please be informed that calling the sea faced and shared by Korea,
Japan, and Russia, should not be called as "East Sea", rather it
should be called as "the Sea of Japan" because this name has been
proved as correct and justified by the United Nations. (please refer
to this site:
Korean Government announced before that the "60% of World Maps owned
by 4 major libraries (The British Museum, Library of the University
of Cambridge and Bibliothque Nationale de France and the Library of
Congress of the United States of America) are called East Sea,
however, the research implemented by the Korean Government was
somehow biased: Koreans only investigated selected 228 maps only.
Later the Japanese Government researched by themselves of all
the maps owned by the said 4 major libraries and found that
there are 1285 maps in total. These maps were made during the 19th
century,b and 82 % of these maps use the name of
"the Sea of Japan" and, only a piece of map was actually used the
name of "the East Sea". The Japanese Government officially asked
the Korean Government the details of maps they've alleged as
"60% of maps use the name of East Sea" but we have no answer yet.
Of course, this ocean is generally called as "the Sea of Japan"
more frequently than "the East Sea" is.... vague and rarely known
to the man on the streets :(
In addition to these facts, in Korea, there is a cyber terror group
called "VANK" and they owned more than 10,000 members. The problem
of VANK are: they start to make a rush on disadvantageous facts to
the Koreans by sending SPAM.... I hope that Google will not give a
way to such terror attacks too easily...
Thank you very much for your attention and wish you would correct
the said error of the Google Maps very soon.
