Little Asia is a merger of several districts which for some strange coincidence have gathered near each other. The district is near the waterfront and the land prices might have something to do with it or the history of the ships coming into the docks. It is predominately Chinese with the Japanese district coming in second with its population. The Japanese community is falling in position to the rapidly rising Vietnamese and Middle Eastern immigrants as many second and third generation Japanese have moved to other parts of town. The district is low income but is financially strong as tourism to this area of town is high.
