Yes.
There are so few Japanese here, only 18,000 in all of Texas... and that's actually one of the bigger numbers ...keep in mind Texas is the biggest state in the Union...so 18,000/20,000,000 .... is a very small number.....

Hawaii and California are definitely your best bet, Seattle too.

Biggest?

The population of Texas is 24.8 million, which is 2/3rds the size of California at 37 million.

And as to geographic size...

I also find this thread.

Cities with the largest Japanese population

From what I recall Southern California and Hawaii were the main places for Japanese. Although the Pacific Northwest is also mentioned a fair amount. Then there's the following at CD.

The main surprise I remember there is Salem, West Virginia. I found out that's probably because they have, or had, a college that's in partnership with a Japanese college.

I think that you're referring to Salem, MA though......

Nope, I really did mean Salem, West Virginia. For a time their University was called "Salem-Teikyo" but that agreement ended in 2000. After that it looks like the Japanese influenced ebbed.

Anyway here's some additional links on counties with high percentages of Japanese, warning it's a pdf.
