Japan is probably the largest single market as three USA airlines have service from at least four cities and most except USairways fly to Tokyo. United, Delta(NW) and AA fly from the east and west coasts and their midwest hubs to Japan. Hawaii is very big for Japanesse vacations, HNL sometimes looks like a Japanesse airport with all the JAL 747's in special tropical livery. LAX, SFO, ORD and JFK are the biggest markets since they each have both Japanesse airlines and two or more US airlines. Delta flies from Atlanta, DTW, MSP, PDX and SEA with no other competition to NRT. Continental has Houston and Newark to itself with 777 to NRT.
Korean airlines fly to more major USA cities then Japanesse airlines do. Asiana and Korean have the biggest footprints by Asia-Pacific airlines in the USA.
Most US airlines have or will soon be flying to Peking and/or Shanghai in the People's Republic of China. Honk Kong is a great market for Asia starting years ago with Pan AM's China Clipper and then nonstop in the 1970's by 747SP from SFO now flown nonstop by United as well as from Chicago nonstop by UA.
Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's crown jewel of an airline, flies to all the big USA markets nonstop with their 777-300ER and 744, SFO, LAX and JFK multiple times daily.
Singapore Airlines should have been flying nonstop with the A380 by now, recessions do kill good intentions. SQ flies to both coast via NRT, ICN, NRT and FRA to JFK. They also fly all Business Class nonstops to LAX and Newark from SIN.
Qantas from Australia is the first airline to fly the A380 to LAX and flies to all major Australian cities daily from LAX. They own that market with up to 6 daily Jumbo jet flights, parts of LAX becomes a Qantas parking lot most of the day.
Other airlines from Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and China fly to the USA, mostly to California or New York.

Is your question relating to the Far East and S.E. Asia only? India is also very much in Asia and there are at least 4 US carriers (DL/NW, AA, CO) and 2 Indian carriers (AI, 9W) flying between the US and India.....

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 5): As you can see Japan heavily favored in the list.
My Wife and I visited Hawaii for the first time this past August, I knew Hawaii was a popular tourist destination for Japanese but we were really surprised just how much they dominated the scene in Waikiki. There were malls that catered entirely to Japanese tourists, My wife and I wandered around looking to buy some souvenirs not knowing whether we were allowed in the mall. We were the only non Japanese in this entire mall.
Surprisingly on Maui there were very few Japanese, they seemed concentrated on Oahu.
That's the sad part (at least in the US) that most people associate Asia, the largest continent, with just the Orient or the Far East. I wish that when people say "Asia" or "Asian" they include all of the countries in Asia, not just the Orient.
On that note, to be fair, it would be interesting to note the boardings data for the following cities in India: BOM, DEL, MAA, BLR and countries: Singapore (SIN), Malaysia and Thailand (BKK).

I wonder if its possible to for someone to make a list of the largest 10 or so markets from the USA to Asia (as opposed to city pairs). I dont have access to the data anymore and its been a while since ive seen that. Last I looked LAX was the largest followed by SFO, NYC, HNL and ORD.

Well, I was bored here at work so I checked the OAG for this May and came up with these figures:
Assumptions: 747 has 374 seats, 330 has 298 seats, 340 has 246 seats, 340 (SQ has 100 seats), 777 has 316 seats. *only* counted Far East Asia (not Oceania nor Indian Sub Continent nor "Middle East")
LAX: 57,808 seats per week
This is a rough guess but I am confident it is close.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 10): Access to a data for work. Ultimately the info is sourced from IATA and DOT.
Would you have any information on PHX -ASIA-PHX passengers?
I've always wondered what PHX main asian destination are. When I worked as CSR for US Airways in PHX 2007 I would check in a decent amount of PVG, TPE, and HKG passengers on a daily basis. Also I know HP use to codeshare with EVA Air from PHX-LAX/SFO-TPE for a long time. So I would think TPE would have to be one of the top destinations out of PHX?
1. Tokyo 4,656,941
2. Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto MSA 2,892,736 (amazing considering how little direct service it has been able to sustain)
If you break it down by airports its Nagoya-867,907 and Osaka 2,0224,829
3. Seoul 2,688,376
4. Taipei 2,078,162
5. Hong Kong 1,463,495
I'd expected a China city such as Shanghai to squeeze in for future years
