Replacement templates for Far East vacation locals. Unlike EA's cheap, low-budget plastic NPCs, these ones look more or less Asian (about as Asian as you can get in TS2, anyway) and have actual Japanese names to match.

Skin, hair, and eye colors are not altered in any way, so you'll still have a few blue-eyed blond Far East locals running around. They're a heck of a lot easier on the eyes than the originals are, though, and you can always change their hair color.

For best results, get something that allows you to customize NPCs and put custom Asian-type hair on them. Try sites like these for hairstyles.

Sims Artist Union

If you're really dedicated, you can always download custom skintones that make Sims look more like Asians than the in-game skintones allow. There's a tutorial here.

Asian skintones can be found here:
Asian skintone using Louis bodyskin
Opaline and Golden Grace skintones (Golden Grace is the Asian skin.)

These will not affect locals in already-existing Far East vacation spots. Only new vacation areas will be affected.
