Yes - I have heard that Japanese descendants actually the largest (#1) group in Hawaii. More numerous than either white people or native islanders. Several of Hawaii's Congressmen since they became a state in 1960, have been Japanese-descended. Because they were so dominant there, Hawaiian Japanese were not sent to internment camps during World War II, as were Japanese families in the U.S. and Canadian west coast states.

Hawaii is definitely the most Japanese of American states; California also has many AJAs (Americans of Japanese ancestry). But unlike Brazil, which continues to have lots of people moving back and forth to and from Japan, there isn't a lot of Japanese immigration to the USA, either California, Hawaii or anywhere else. As a result, the Japanese populations in the USA are much more American and assimilated than the ones in Brazil. You can still hear Japanese spoken in Sao Paulo's largest nihonjin neighborhood (Liberdade), and, conversely, among the huge populations of Japanese-Brazilians who have moved to Japan to find work, a significant number of them refuse to assimilate into Japanese culture, even those who have permanent resident status in Japan. Many refuse to educate their kids in Japanese, preferring to think of them as Brazilians and educating them in private Portuguese-language schools even though they are of partial or full Japanese descent and were born in Japan.

Why is isn't there alot of japanese immigration in the usa? In the future will there be more japanese immigration to the united states going to california and hawaii? I am just asking because in the future i heard that hawaii and california may have the next largest japanese population like brazil does.

Right now, there is little Japanese emigration anywhere. During the early parts of the 1900s and the latter parts of the 1800s the emigration to USA and Brazil took place, but now Japanese don't seem to be going anywhere. Very few Japanese are immigrating to the USA with the intention of staying. Some younger single men and women go to the large cities (NYC, LA), but even they are more transients than immigrants.

The reason why i am asking this same question over and over again is because nobody is answering it and people are just ignoring it as if they forgot about it that's my reason why.
