Abstract: Environmental condition of the colonies and physical status of Japanese emigrants in South America, especially in basin of the Amazon of the tropics and the middle part of it in temperate zone were investigated from July to September 1968. Various figures on temperature, humidity, radiation, daily fluctuation of temperature, barometric pressure and so on were obtained in several colonies. It was suggested that these severe conditions should influence greatly on health and life of the emigrants, especially living in the tropical zone. About physical status, it was found that the body weight, basal metabolism, blood pressure, grip strength, total protein and total cholesterol in blood serum and skin fold of the emigrants, especially living in the Amazon area showed lower tendencies than those of Japanese standards or mean values. But the lowering of the functions by aging was not so significant. And physiques of the children of the emigrants were lower compared with those of the children living in Japan. The physical functions of the members of this investigation during the survey trip showed some fluctuation due to variation of the conditions, as temperature, barometric pressure, foods and so on of the colonies.
