Sao Paulo has the most Japanese of any city outside of Japan.

That is because Japanese people make up less than 1% of Brazil's population. Hence why most people do not associate Japanese people with Brazil.

I think San Francisco is more known for Chinese and a historic Chinatown.

And they make up even less of the U.S population...

but, you don't see people surprised that there are Japanese-Americans...


The problem is that many people don't realize that Brazil was a country of immigrants...with many parallels to the U.S.

ATL has 12,436? Only about 2000 less than L.A.? Where did you get those numbers from? According to the 2000 census Atlanta had only 5000 in the entire metro region, which is only .1% of the entire metro pop of 5 million.
