Number may be used to describe body of water between Japan, ROK

Today’s Asahi wrote that the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) may decide to use a number to describe the body of water between Japan and South Korea in view of the ROK’s assertion that it should be called the East Sea in addition to the Sea of Japan, which has been used to describe it for many decades. The IHO has reportedly been considering using numbers instead of names to describe every body of water around the globe in the digital age.
