The Far East is a term often used by people in the Western world to refer to the countries of East Asia. It is a Eurocentric term that nevertheless retains strong popular usage. "Far East" came because from Europe the Eastern Asia is the "farthest" of the two "easts" (the others being Near East and Middle East) literally near the Pacific Ocean.
