Hey all!

I'm an Asian American (Japanese) looking to move to the West Coast to find larger communities of East Asian-Americans. I have found over a few trips that Asian-Americans tended to be more assimilated on the West Coast (which is how I identify myself), but I don't want to move to the larger cities (LA, SF, Seattle).

What I am looking for is maybe a town/small city outside of these metropolises that have a large concentration of East Asian-Americans, ideally more assimilated populations.

Any leads?

Thank you!

Agree. There's a Japantown in downtown San Jose, too.

Fresno has a large Asian population. One of my best friends is a Japanese-American who lives in Fresno.

Thank you for the replies!

Hadn't thought of the smaller college towns, but I'm not sure how I'd feel living in one post-college...

I'll look more into Fresno and San Jose.

Fullerton in Southern California is around 25% Asian, and a nice smaller city of 135K with a large university as well.

You'd really have to stretch your definition of "smaller" to include Fresno or San Jose in this discussion.

Good point. San Jose is so big because it just kept annexing towns and suburbs around it forever. So, it's really more like a bunch of different smaller towns or neighborhoods, you'd call them now. You can live your life never seeing most of the "city."
