How about letting existing, tax-paying foreign residents in first Japan? Priorities!

Yeah, seems there are other things on the agenda prior to this happening.

Cant trust they will even let you back in once you return from Hawaii.

Can mainland Americans freely travel to Hawaii still? If so, this is a ridiculous idea but one we've come to expect from the brainless goons in Kasumigaseki.

Someone has been talking to their buddies again. Someone's buddies have decided they are not quite rich enough again.

"Considering" -lol!, I wouldn't hold my breath as NZ, who hasn't had a case of community transmission in 3 months, is still on the list of countries whose citizens are banned from entering Japan.

This is so ludicrous.

I'm not trying to defend Japan or anything but I think that the actual reason why they haven't opened to NZ and Australia yet is because both of these countries don't want to open to Japan. I think they want to open to each other first. Japan is set to resume travel (and visa applications) with both Vietnam and Thailand around these days, so it's pretty clear that is NZ and Australia not wanting to open rather than the opposite (and they are right, considering the spike of cases in Japan).

Hawaii has a 14 day mandatory quarantine for anyone flying in even from the mainland.

Plus for Japan,there's no money opening up to Oz and N.Z. Japanese ain't flocking to go there.But the business betweeen Hawaii and Japan,particularly in tourism, is lost revenue for both sides. But that 14 day lockdown in Hawaii will have to go before Japanese start going again.

Oh, but, this is not for the foreigners, so don't worry about that. We ain't going anywhere for months (not, if you want to be able to come back home in Japan).

It's so that Japanese can still have their Hawaii holidays and Hawaii weddings. Maybe some high ranking officials daughters' weddings were in danger of not happening - now they're saved.

Also, many Japanese have PR cards and houses in Hawaii and they are hankering for a vacation.
