Mongoliain the west, Siberiain the north, China properto the south and North Koreain the southeast. Inner Manchuria has access to the Yellow Seaand the Bohai Seato the south, while Outer Manchuria has access to the Sea of Japanand the Sea of Okhotskto the east and northeast.
To the south, Manchuria was separated from China proper by the Inner Willow Palisade, which restricted the movement of the Han Chinese into Manchuria during the
Qing dynasty, as the area was off-limits to the Han until the Qing started colonizing the area with them later on in the dynasty's rule. The Manchu area was separated from modern-day Inner Mongoliaby the Outer Willow Palisade, which kept the Manchu and the Mongols in the area separate.
