Only slightly. The distance to MX is similar, and the trip up the west coast would be pretty interesting. I don't know how much time the OP has at their disposal.

If when we sail to Canada there would be no time constraint as such. But likely would want to do it in one season. So say from Japan up to russia to Alaska in one meandering trip finished within the season so likely 4months or less weather opening there.
Or Japan to western Canada in one passage.

It looks quite doable island hoping to Hawaii then to the USA and up the coast to Van. I'm not sure what the trip would be like. I believe it's a lot of sailing to windward. Plus I'm more interested in getting to Canada to live there a while and see family. Sailing to me is the fun part and although I would like to see different places etc its not like I would stay at each place for too long. Probably I would on the way back.
Having said that no point in racing there so I'm talking about stopping here or there but just not staying very long. This of corse is dependent on currents and wind trends so I would like a route that can be made in one semi continual manner. If that makes sense. Suppose another way of putting it is I don't want to have to wait out a winter or season waiting for the weather trend to change to make the next portion possible. I don't mind waiting for weather windows tho.

You'll want to have a look at Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes. Also the free pilot charts from NOAA. You'll really need to plan your timing.

You'll want to have a peak at the world's prevailing winds before Mahjong routing recommendations
