My sister is currently in Japan and when she returns to the US she's indicated she might want a place where she can keep up her Japanese. I'm thinking the Los Angeles County area is one such place, but I think is probably warmer than she wants. Anything in the Northern California to Washington area that'd fit?

Note: She's like my favorite sister, but other than our shared love of Science Fiction we're quite different. She's much more liberal than I on social issues and is not conventionally religious. So a place more "liberal" than I'd tolerate might be fine by her.

They have a whole Japanese cluster there with supermarkets and restaurants and everything else Japanese. If you're not Japanese here you easily stand out.

Hawaii is probably her best bet. Japanese is written alongside english in many places.

Seattle is also a good bet. LA, as you said, has a high number of Japanese.
