Japan in Small Town America

コーバリス, オレゴン州

Even in the smallest of small-town America, Corvallis, Oregon (population 53,900), Japan has a presence, it seems.

I was surprised to discover not one but two Japanese-themed restaurants and an aikido center.

  1. Sheesh, Corvallis "ain't" that small. In fact it is Oregon's 10th largest municipality. Secondly, in case you have forgotten on the west side of town there happens to be a small college. Perhaps you have heard of it, Oregon State University.

    Having a MAJOR institution of higher learning in a "small town" tends to give a community a more broader prospective.

    If I am not mistaken, even Seal Rock, just south of Newport with a population of, what(?) 150(?), has a Japanese restaurant.

    You're selling "Corn Valley" short.

    By the way, heck of basketball team those Beavs have!

    Go Ducks!
