Japanese Population in Michigan

There are more than 10,000 Japanese people living in the state of Michigan. The great portion of its population is settled in tri-counties; Oakland, Wayne, and Washtenaw. Most of Japanese families who move to Michigan are not immigrants, but they are here for their fathers' work assignments abroad. They stay for 3 to 5 years on the average and eventually return to their home country.

There are 2 other small Japanese Schools: one is in Grand Rapids, the other is in Battle Creek.

In Handbook for teachers of Japanese students, there is a chart that tells you how many Japanese students in each major school district in the area.
