Name a Valid Country Bordering Each Sea

It's pretty simple, I name a sea and you name any of the countries that borders that sea. Have Fun!
I called it the East Sea so that it wouldn't be too obvious who borders it
Not counting overseas territories

I got it right even w/o being familiar with it. My strategy was simply to start name dropping countries large enough to have a sea that I have not heard of. India was a natural shot in the dark.

Wikipedia lists a dozen of seas called "East Sea" by someone. It's a confusing question. I'd suggest changing it to something else, such as the Celebes Sea or the Cantabrian Sea.

China was my first guess, thinking of the East China Sea (Donghai, the local name for the sea, in Chinese literally translates to "east sea"). When it was wrong, I guessed Japan, and it accepted it. I guess the quiz refers to a different East Sea than I know. But, perhaps this should be changed as there are evidently various "East Sea"s.

East sea is the name for the baltic sea in a big part of europe. (Used to be in english aswell, but it is the only germanic language that changed to baltic) Just for your information, not saying it is wrong, but if you want to avoid confusion..

Can you add write multiple names for some seas with multiple names? Arabian sea is also called "Persian Sea" (and there is a name dispute about it) and Laccadive sea is also called "Lakshamandeep sea"

What we call the South China Sea is called the East Sea by Vietnam. Calling it the South China Sea when it is the sea directly off the east coast of Vietnam has political connotations which the Vietnamese find pretty offensive.
