I would imagine they used them in the Phillipines, Wake and Guam. If there were any left after the initial fighting

the Japanese also used a lot of captured british and commonwealth vehicles including tanks. How ever remember that most of the vehicles would have been early models not the more common late war trucks.

Speaking of the PI, several M3 Stuarts were captured and used by the Japanese in Cambodia along with the aforementioned british/commonwealth vehicles.
