Is Hawaiian similar to japanese?

I have known that there are a couple of things similar in japan and hawaii but does the language have anything in common?

They are not (closely) related, if that's what you're asking. There are some suggestions that give Japanese a distant relationship with the Austronesian languages, but it would almost certainly be too distant to be of any real use when learning the languages, if it exists.


If the two were close, we'd have pineapple sushi by now.
