As a reward for not attacking

Answers:

You mean of course, 'If they HAD LANDED'.
However it's most unlikely they would have been allowed to land.

Stop with the fantasy.
They were Japanese FIRST. So not interested. Many planes did not have landing gear(to lighten the load and carry more fuel) as it was a one way trip for all of them(they knew it and volunteered) so deliver the bomb and use the plane as a bomb...by Kamikaze flying it into the target= greater success of a hit.

It's impossible to say what would have happened, because it didn't happen. You could run through hundreds of various scenarios and in the end, all it would be is an exercise in fantasy. Come up with one good enough and write a screenplay for it and who knows, maybe you'll find a buyer for it and get paid handsomely.

It would be hard to argue that the pilots, if the first wave of 45 Mitsubishi 'Zeroes', 90 Nakajima 'Kates' and 54 Aicha 'Vals', would have been able to convince everyone on the 'ground' that they were friendlies coming to voluntarily give themselves up. That sort of mass disloyalty among Japanese, with the Japanese culture of the time, just would not have happened. One or two lone wolves, maybe, but even that is hard to conceive. Japan, as an island culture, was largely isolated for centuries and the culture was an insular one. A Japanese would commit suicide before ever betraying the Emperor, who was seen as Divine.

But let's say some pilots did break away, and were not immediately hunted down by their fellows, and managed to land safely somewhere - not at any of the six airfields on the islands, as all were hit in both waves of the attack. With everything that was going on, they'd have probably been shot before they could overcome the language barrier and convince anyone they were giving themselves up. We can't imagine what it was like on the the main island that day - civilians were outside firing futilely into the sky at Japanese planes - those who weren't hiding - and blood was boiling. They have shot first and worried about it later.

But let's say a few planes and pilots made it safely. With war being declared, they'd have immediately been official POWs. Capturing the planes would have been a big help - especially a Zero. All Japanese pilots had standing orders to destroy the plane rather than let the enemy get their hands on it. It's possible the war in the Pacific would have ended much sooner had the US got one at Pearl. That happened over a year and a half later, when Japan made small incursion into the Alaskan peninsula and a Zero was shot down near Dutch Harbor and recovered. Masatake Okumiya, a Japanese officer who led many Zero squadrons and authored the book “Zero,” described the significance of the Allies’ capture of that plane as “no less serious than the Japanese defeat at Midway” and said it “did much to hasten our final defeat.” Within two months, the US figured out the Zero's weaknesses (by repairing it and testing it) and Allied fighting tactics were modified to take advantage. The Zero lost its invincibility and was reduced to being a kamikaze plane.

So, maybe, these few pilots would have been rewarded, eventually, with citizenship, assuming they wished it. I just cannot see it, with the way Japanese culture of the time was.

You must have missed a day in your history class when they talked about how the US put its own citizens of Japanese ancestry into relocation camps.

Dumbest question of the night.

Maybe eventually, but not in the middle of the war.

oh please go play with your x box ....... get a life .

No. They wouldn't, it would be the same as if a Mexican crossed the boarder. An illegal immigrant.

And, if the Japanese didn't have an interest in attacking then they would not have sent out any planes. There would have never been a chance for this hypothetical situation.
