This is a customizable quiz of some significant cities in eastern Asia, which is comprised of the countries of: Mongolia, China, North Korea, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. (Taiwan's status as a country is disputed. See note below.)

Japan's largest cities are:
  1. Tokyo globe icon
  2. Yokahama
  3. Osaka globe icon
  4. Nagoya
  5. Sapporo globe icon
Yokahama and Nagoya are relatively close to Tokyo, and weren't included in the quiz because of the difficulty one would have in trying to click on them without hitting the wrong city.

China's largest cities are:
  1. Shanghai globe icon
  2. Beijing globe icon
  3. Tianjin globe icon
  4. Guangzhou globe icon
  5. Shenzhen
Shenzhen was not included in this quiz, as it would be too hard to click on, being between Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

Ulaanbaator globe icon , the capital of Mongolia, has a population of just shy of 1.1 million people (2010 census). All other cities in Mongolia have a population of 180,000 or less.
  • China is officially called the People's Republic of China (PRC).
  • Taiwan is alternatively known as the Republic of China (ROC).
    The PRC considers Taiwan to be its 23rd province and claims to have sovereignty over it. Conversely, the ROC claims to have sovereignty over all of mainland China.
    Most countries do not officially recognize Taiwan as an independent country, due to China's insistence that nations cannot have official relations with both China and Taiwan. Recommended reading:
