“Monday, August 26, 2013, Honolulu, HI – Senator Mazie K. Hirono, the first Japanese immigrant to serve in the Senate and Co-Chair of the Congressional Study Group on Japan, discussed her childhood in Japan and stressed the importance of the Hawaii-Japan relationship in an interview featured in Japan Airlines’ (JAL) Eheu in-flight magazine. The piece is running in the summer 2013 edition of the quarterly magazine, which is available on flights from Japan to Hawaii. The magazine helps promote Hawaii as a premier destination for both tourists and business travelers from Asia, an issue that has long been a priority for Hirono. One of the largest airlines in the world, JAL reportedly brings nearly two-thirds of all Japanese tourists to Hawaii.”
