Best Answer

The Japanese occupied some of the Aleution Islands, which are part of the current state of Alaska. The only Alaskan highway that leads from Canada to Alaska and through Alaska to the top was built by the US Army specifically to fight the Japanese in WW2. This highway still exists for tourists to drive thru Alaska on.
