Yeah, but you could also say "farvel", or "vi ses", in my opinion, "farvel" and "Vi ses" is more common. "Vi ses" is when you are taking to someone you probably will meet again, like a friend.

I'm surprised! I've watched about 100 hours of Danish TV now and they often use hej hej

Sounds very much like "hi" and "yeah" in English come from Danish.

Is the word for hello/hi also used for bye/goodbye in all Scandinavian languages? I know in Swedish bye is 'hej da' which literally means hi then

In Finland we often say "hei" and then "hei hei" when we say goodbye. Or "moi" and "moi moi" :)

Japanese for ‘Yes’ is ‘Hai’, which sounds pretty much just like Danish ‘Hej’.
