Do they call them "Rainbows" in Japan??

They are indeed called "rainbow trout" in Japanese: nijimasu. "Niji" means rainbow, and "masu" means trout. They aren't native to Japan, though, so the ones I smoked were farmed trout. I think there are some rivers with native brown trout in Japan, but I would say ayu and yamame (a type of salmon) are the most common river fish eaten here.
