Just for thrills...

Assuming you're at about 35 degrees latitude, your distance from the Earth's axis is about 6378*cos(35)=5225km. The west coast of the US is about 100 degrees(1.745 radians) east of Japan. This gives a surface distance of 5225*1.745=9118km(5666mi). Likewise, the central US is about 11400km(7084mi) and the east coast is about 13225km(8218mi) from Japan.

That's assuming you don't want to tunnel through the Earth, of course. :)
