The host also spoke on Today about quarantine protocols in Tokyo and how they differed from what they'd become in the United States.

"They have very strict protocols here," Savannah said. "In a way it's like stepping back in time. "At least for those of us in (the United States), at the height of the pandemic, we remember the washing of the hands, the mask-wearing, all of that. It's just like that here. It's really locked down here in Tokyo."
