The way i see the equivalent to part of asia in eora is ixamitl . i think it has an aspect of mongolia, india and even south american incan aspects.  however what would be far east asia in eora?  the cultural equivalent of japan and china, for example ?

I don't think it has an equivalent in any eastern Asian countries. Probably more western Asian. Such as perhaps Turkey.

Well the Huana are heavily influenced by Polynesian/Indonesian culture.

 

Rauatai seems to have some japanese vibes as well. It seems like a mix of Japan, Prussia and something else.

There is no direct reference. Boeroer listed some influences of cultures from Asia which already made it into Eora. Obs did say that while they do take inspiration from real cultures they avoid taking too much from one culture to avoid direct comparisons.

that's a very wide range

huana are mostly polynesia which exist in asia america and oceania

rauatai looks part japan

was hoping for some south and west asia style things in poe

but atleast the south america style ixamitl have some interesting potential

Boreal Dwarves and Naasitaq is based on inuit culture. Not exactly what you're looking for. Just adding data.

One wonders what RL cultures Yezuha (aka Rekke-land) might be inspired by.

Ixamitl looks like a combination of india/south asia with south american incan civilization.

Far away and nearly unintelligible speech? Massachusetts.
