East China Sea

Digital relief map of East China Sea

The East China Sea is bounded by China to the west, the Yellow Sea to the northwest, Korea and Japan to the northeast, the Ryukyu Islands to the southeast, and Formosa (Taiwan) to the southwest. Because it was surrounded by Japanese bases, the East China Sea was firmly under Japanese control until late in the war, although American submarines penetrated the area from the earliest days of the conflict.
