This study examined the characteristics of Japanese patients who required psychiatric intervention through the Consulate-General Japan in New York. The findings show that 61.5% of cases were tourists in contrast with 38.5% who were residents. Seventy three point one percent of all cases had psychiatric disorders prior to traveling to the United States. Seventy one point two had schizophrenia, and 48.1% required intervention within one week stay in the United States. The study indicated cultural elements had little influence on their psychiatric crises. The dominant cases, which were schizophrenics who traveled because of their delusional symptoms, were consistent with cases of "voyage pathologique". It was also suggested that cases with personality disorders are increasing in number. And we inferred that cases with substance-related disorders, particularly among young illegal residents, must be present in greater numbers.
