- If you want to study at a university in the USA, you will first need to study the English language to a college level, and look for any opportunity to apply to one upon completing your high school education. Or you can enrol in a college in Japan, and look for any exchange program from that college with one in the US.

- If you want to teach the Japanese language, I recommend going through a teacher training school (learning Japanese as "kokugo" and being able to teach it as "nihongo" are two different things) and get qualified. There are many teacher training institutes in Japan.

One of the qualifications is as follows:

You can try to become a Japanese language teacher for adult education classes that a city/county offers through community colleges. They usually also offer Spanish and other languages, cooking, photographing, painting, Taichi, computer class, etc. However, the interests in Japanese language is waning in USA. You are 20-30 years late. Chinese is more for the future as the international business requirements demand.
Good luck.

It depends what kind of teacher you want to be.

If you want to be a school teacher (elementary, middle, junior, high) then you'll need to go to college in the United States for the proper degree and teaching certification.

If you just want to teach at a private Japanese Language school company, you'll just need the necessary English skills and meet the immigration requirements.
