From the photo, I wonder if they were only ever imported to Hawaii.

Someone in a Facebook group told me some were in the mainland

There were a few Hino demonstrators in New York in the early 1980s.

Same model or different?

They were transit models, not tourist coaches. Aside from being left hand drive (and larger FMVSS spec bumpers) they looked mostly identical to contemporary JDM Hino buses. IDK if they had any typical American transit bus specs like floor mounted turn signals and stop request cords.
