The Liancourt Rocks are a group of about 90 islets and reefs, all falling within this graticule in the Sea of Japan. They comprise all of the land in this graticule. The total land area is about 0.18 square kilometers, so the probability of a land geohash in this graticule is a little less than 1 in 50,000 on any given day.
The Liancourt Rocks are currently administered by South Korea, but Japan also claims sovereignty. This dispute is an important source of ongoing friction between the two countries.
The islands are known in Korea as Dokdo (독도) and in Japan as Takeshima(竹島).
The largest of the islands has two permanent inhabitants. It is not known whether they are geohashers.
