1, Is there any hospital need Japanese speaking nurse in Oahu?Our island's economy depends on tourist which the bulk is from Japan. I wouldn't say the need but it would be a plus. We have a shortage of nurses just like any US city so any nurse with the proper credential will not be turned away.
2, Are there many foreign nurses in big hospitals in Oahu or other Islands?-Yes, hospitals through out our islands are or once were "travelers" I would say Queen's has the most of them.
Kuakini is known as the "Japanese Hospital" here. It has a lot of ties to Japan.
I've worked with a few nurses from Japan in several other hospitals here but you might enjoy working at Kuakini.
Here is a page from their website that tells a bit about its history:
Hi, Hawaii Nurses.
I am a California RN working for 3 yeras in San Francisco.
I am also Japanese RN having 7 year experience in my native country.
My specialty is Cardiac, Tele, some Neuro, mostly Adult acute nursing.
I am seriously thinking about moving Hawaii, Oahu.
Since my native language is Japanese, my bilingual ability and cultural background might help patients over there. I hope.:wink2:
Here I need some advice.

I checked Queen Medical, Kuakini, Straub, and St. Francis.
Not sure which one is better for me.
Then I need hear from nurses who are working those hospitals.
life in Hawaii little bit expensive than San Francisco and may be same as Tokyo!!
Thank you very much.
