Having difficulty sourcing BMX of any kind, let alone freestyle (with beefy forks).

I've seen plans for other AZ bikes (including tandems) that use 'chopped' forks from a mountain bike - for 26" wheels - 'cut and shut' down to 20".

Would these be strong enough for Kyoto Cruiser?

The shortened 26 inch forks are probably better than typical 20 inch kid's bike forks due to the beefier tubing used.
