The term Ethnic Japanese, or Nikkei (日系), usually refers to people who live outside Japan, who either emigrated from Japan or are descendants of a person who emigrated from Japan. The largest such communities are in the United States (mainly California and Hawaii), Brazil, and China (mainly Shanghai), although there are also sizable communities in Peru, Mexico, Russia, Australia (mainly Queensland and Sydney) as well as other countries.

While most Japanese live on the islands, some emigrated, predominantly to Hawaii, the west coast of the United States and Canada, Latin America (particularly, Brazil), and Russia, (particularly, Sakhalin and Primorsky Krai).
The most accepted theory is that present-day Japanese are descended principally from both the Jomon, a paleo-Asiatic people, and the Yayoi, a neo-Asiatic people, with cultural influences from the Korean kingdoms of Gaya and Baekje, and also from the Sui, and Tang Dynasty of China.
Their comparatively shorter-nosed and hairless Asian counterparts to the south, however, are believed to be due to adaptation to the damper climates, and to their mixing with Austronesian prototypes, when migrating to the Pacific Ocean.
The Japanese Filipinos are ethnicJapanese born in the Philippines.
This demonstrates that to the Japanese, it was not a foregone to conclusion to assume that an ethnicJapanese born in the US would be loyal to the US, but if he was, it was extremely easy for him to avoid be labeled as a worthless traitor.
The ethnicJapanese on the west coast were a recently arrived group, in that 40%, including nearly all heads of household, were foreign born and did not even have American citizenship, and most of the rest were their immediate children, most of them still minors.
