In which U.S. state there are many Japanese speakers?

California
Maryland
Hawaii
Alaska
The first Japanese im­mi­grants arrived in Hawaii in 1885 (when it was not a part of the U.S. yet) as contract laborers for the sugar cane and pineap­ple plan­ta­tion­s. Today, ap­prox­i­mate­ly 12% of Hawaii res­i­dents speak Japane­se, with an es­ti­mat­ed 12.6% of the pop­u­la­tion of Japanese ancestry in 2008. The Japane­se, with their economic and his­tor­i­cal ties to Hawaii as well as relative ge­o­graph­i­cal prox­im­i­ty, are also among prin­ci­pal tourists in Hawaii.
