Is Japan doing anything to attract well educated new residents from the Hong Kong Exodus?

No. As we still have COVID-19 pandemic, Japan is basically not accepting immigrants.
But someone posted some wrong ideas. Japanese population is declining rapidly since 2010 or so. So there was great shortage of labor in the last few years. And the current Abe administration decided to accept many workers from other countries.
The employment rate in Japan was less than 3% until recently. Without pandemic, Japan might have accepted more immigrants. But not necessarily from HK.

No，because hongkonger will not go anywhere, they stay in hongkong.

yes, they are offering Visas and so is Australia, and in the UK, they say "come home".Because Hong Kong used to be owned by the UK, many are already citizens of UK. USA should do the same.

Japan doesn't see what's happening in Hong Kong as their problem.

Probably not. Japan's economy has not been doing well for over 20 years and while unemployment rates had slightly improved in 2019, the Covid-19 pandemic killed it. Japan is not in any position to import more people for an economy that can't even keep its own citizens fully employed.

I doubt the Japanese are encouraging Chinese to move to their shores. Not a very trusting society. They are a homogeneous, xenophobic country.

I don't know. It's a shame about hong kong. But at least the world finally knows who the real China is.
