Since you have been a LPR for over 5 years .. and if you have spent more than 1/2 of those 5 years in the US ...you should qualify for naturalization.

BUT, be forewarned that Japan will probalby not allow you to have dual citizenship.

Customer
My question was what is fastest way to earn US citizenship. I already know process for Japan.

Franco Capriotti, Expert

There is no 'fast' way to become a US citizen.  File form N-400 ... the process will take 9-15 months.
