Does the cherry salmon have another name in Japan?

Do pink salmon or other Pacifc salmon species spawn in Japan?

The reason for this question is that a friend who is native Japanese saw a reference to "pink" salmon in Hokkaido, per the ANA Airlines web site, and asked me if that is the same as cherry salmon.

Bob,

Hopefully Nobuo will see this and chime in. Cherry salmon are not the same as our pinks (humpies). That is about all that I remember although I have a fuzzy memory that they might also not all die upon spawning, thus making them more akin to our steelhead and atlantics.
