Found some interesting data about who Asian women in the US are married to by race. The source is http://www.asian-nation.org/interracial.shtml and there is a ton of data there, but I will try to narrow it down to the most interesting stuff below. Go to the source if you want all of the data.
The stats below show for each of the six largest Asian populations in the US, who the women are married to by race. The first number is the percent of all marriages for that Asian group in the US and the second number is the percent of only US raised members of that Asian group. The first number will include foreign raised and US raised individuals while the second number will only include US raised individuals. In every case, except Japanese, the Asian women marry a lot less of their own group after their 2nd generation in the US.
When you look at all Asian women marriages in the US (foreign raised women and US raised women), here are some interesting stats:
Most likely to marry men from their own country = Asian Indian women at 93% - but their second generation in US drops to 52%
Least likely to marry men from their own country = Japanese women at 44%
Most likely to marry other Asian men not from their home country = Japanese women at 8%
Least likely to marry other Asian men not from their home country = Asian Indian women at roughly 1%
Most likely to marry white men = Japanese women at 38% followed by Filipinas at 27% and Korean women at 24%
Also interesting that over half, 58%, of US raised Korean women marry white men.
Least likely to marry white men = Asian Indian women at 5%, but their second generation women marry white men at 38%
Most likely to marry black men = Filipinas at about 3% followed by Japanese women at 2%.
US raised Filipinas marry black men at about 4% followed by US raised Asian Indian women at about 3%.
Least likely to marry black men = Vietnamese women at 0.2% closely followed by Chinese women at 0.3%.
Most likely to marry Latino men = Filipinas at about 4% followed by Japanese women at 3%.
US raised Filipinas marry Latino men at 8.5%
Least likely to marry Latino men = Asian Indian women at 0.4% followed by Vietnamese at about 1%.
See the stats for Asian women below and the full set of stats at http://www.asian-nation.org/interracial.shtml:

"USR + USR Only" = Both spouses are USR
An interesting study but we need to keep in mind that people that go to live in America are a special group. Would be nice to see similar stats for such people in actual Asia. Also, many people need to be rich to get US visas while Japanese do not have to.
And many Japanese women past 25 go to the US because no Japanese wants them. In case of Filipinas, those who end up in the US after an almost impossible visa process are either the very rich or the very skillful and educated.
This explains why Japanese in the US like white guys- they are the ones with a white man dream ( American dream) while Filipinas not as much. These are the rich ones and they find American guys boring and less educated and also, there are many hungry Pinoy guys in the US who are hot on their trail.
If we are in Asia, most Japanese would not want a non-Japanese while those Filipinas who earn $6 a day and will never see the US because-- no visa! will be so friendly to white guys. Much more so than Japanese.
The Chinese as a rule just come for very practical purposes- study or business and could not give two shits about white guys. Same I guess as in China.
Indians have marriages fixed in family plus many shuttle back and forth between India and the US. Only a tiny percentage of very rich/educated Indians can get the US visa, as well. So you have high class/ high caste ones-- who are they gonna be dating?
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
You have to keep in mind most women from that study are a mix of 1st and 2nd generation women. 2nd generation asian-american women are more or less the same as american white women in attitudes, if not worse in a lot of ways. Women that pursue the visa process from start to finish on their own are very rare and most of them are on student visas or in very specialized occupations. They are a statistically irrelevant group so when you look at these stats you come to conclusion a lot of women are either outright imported from overseas (marriage w/american citizen) or 2nd generation americanized women.
