This is actually pretty easy if you know the place of certain states. Westernmost states here are the answer.

Yeah, this one was actually easier than I expected. I only had one wrong guess when I typed Arizona before Wyoming.

And, indeed, it is very hard if you don't know where states are, or where Tokyo is, or anything about geography really.

Not just westernmost. North-westernmost. The intercontinental airline flights normally spend some time north of the polar circle. The most direct route is the "northern route".

Sure, because when I think "close to Japan", I immediately think of Idaho and Wyoming. Great sushi in Cheyenne!

Jetpunk crows are also the only species of crow that can fly across the Pacific. Amazing creatures.

Crows group up in the hundred thousands. Surely someone has to deviate.

Probably because they could get the distances wrong.

10 / 10 , but I think that was largely due to the fact I knew where the states where, and most seemed to be on the west coast

Yeah it was lucky I did that yesterday. I think there's only one change - Wyoming for Arizona.

the reason arizona wasnt included is because tokyo is a bit farther north than mainland US, so from that angle, arizona wouldnt be that close.
