Culturally, it embraces those societies that have long been part of the Chinese cultural sphere:
- displaying heavy historical influence from the Classical Chinese language (including the traditional Chinese script),
- Confucianism and Neo-Confucianism,
- Mahayana Buddhism/Zen-Chan Buddhism,
- and Taoism (Daoism).
This combination of language, political philosophy, and religion (as well as art, architecture, holidays and festivals, etc.) overlaps with the geographical designation of East Asia for the most part, with a few exceptions, such as the overseas Chinese (including those in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the West).
East Asia and Eastern Asia (the latter form preferred by the United Nations) are both more modern terms for the traditional European name the Far East, which describes the region's geographical position in relation to Europe rather than its location within Asia. However, in contrast to the United Nations definition, East Asia commonly is used to refer to the eastern part of Asia, as the term implies.

Some consider the following countries or regions as part of East Asia, while others do not. Disagreements hinge on the difference between the cultural and geographic definitions of the term. Political perspective is also an important factor. In descending order in terms of the frequency with which they are described as East Asian:
- The parts of China that are not historically dominated by Han Chinese: Qinghai, Tibet, Xinjiang (considered either East Asia or Central Asia or South Asian in the case of Tibet—here the primary question is cultural, with geography also at issue)
- Malaysia (considered either East Asia or Southeast Asia—here the primary question is geographic)
- Citakan:MNG (considered either East Asia or Central Asia—here culture and/or geography may be at issue)
- Citakan:SGP (considered either East Asia or Southeast Asia—here the primary question is geographic)
- Viétnam (considered either East Asia or Southeast Asia—here the primary question is geographic)
- Russian Far East (considered either East Asia or North Asia—here the primary question is political, with culture and geography also at issue)
In infrequent circumstances, the term East Asia is purposefully used to include all countries in Southeast Asia, especially when used in dualism with the term West Asia, the latter of which is then used to include those regions commonly considered West Asia, Central Asia and Southwest Asia.
