Northeast Asia, North East Asia or Northeastern Asia is a term to refer to a geographical subregion of Asia: the northeastern landmass and islands, bordering the Pacific Ocean. It includes the core countries of the ethno-cultural East Asia.

The term Northeast Asia was popularized during the 1930s by an American historian and political scientist named Robert Kerner. Under Kerner's definition, "Northeast Asia" included the Mongolian Plateau, the Northeast China Plain, the Korean Peninsula and the mountainous regions of the Far East controlled by Russia, stretching from Lena River in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east.
