I'm from the Dallas area
and I'm so tired of being in Texas
Don't get me wrong I don't hate Texas all that much it has it's pros and cons like any state, but I'm just so tired of it here I want to try somewhere new

I want to move where there's a lot of Asians (specifically Japanese)
because I'm Japanese and I'd feel a little more comfortable if I'm around a lot more of my ethnicity

Ideally I'd love to move to the city where a car isn't needed much
I'd like to sell my car in Texas and buy a scooter be able to get around with that and public transportation like train, and such

I'm alright with heat, the cold on the other hand will be a little hard for me to adapt to if I go somewhere up north

Any Suggestions?

San Fran most definitely by what you're describing.

I'm going to go against recommending San Francisco. There are a lot of Asians, but they aren't mostly Japanese. The Japanese population isn't that high (a little over 1%).

Honolulu has a Japanese population of over 20%. Hawaii certainly has the largest Japanese influence of any US state. I'd recommend Honolulu if that is what you are looking for. You won't have to worry about the cold there, that's for sure. Not sure about the transportation.

Seattle or San Francisco.

There are more Asians percentage-wise and total number in San Francisco, though.

New York and Los Angeles both have a fairly large number of Japanese in absolute numbers, though New York is easier to get around without a car.

Another place that has a lot of Japanese people and very little reliance on cars is Tokyo.

My first guess would be suburban Los Angeles, and then perhaps the Bay Area or Seattle; Honolulu is an option, but you'll have to consider great distances from the mainland...
