I asked to the Kobe City Museum about the map of North-Pole ccentralized map of the world.(極中心世界地図) published on 1837 (Japan edo-era Tempotenn 天保8)and they replies as follows;

Asking to the curator of the Kobe City Museum, the description on the map as follows;
Sea of Japan describes Sea of Japan/Yatsuhon-kai(Japon Sea)
East China Sea is 支那海”China Sea"
At the Korean strait there describes something, but it is unable to read it because too small.

Thank you Kobe Museum!
