Emergency Contact Information for U.S. Citizens

If you are a U.S. citizen with a serious emergency in Japan, call the American Citizen Services unit that serves your location.

After business hours, you will be directed to an officer on duty.

The Embassy and consulates are closed on both U.S. and Japanese holidays (office closures). Persons affiliated with U.S. Forces in Japan should first contact their base legal, personnel or family support offices. Many of the services we offer can be completed, or at least started, on base.

Human Rights Defenders

Protecting and supporting human rights defenders is a key priority of U.S. foreign policy. Because human rights defenders seek to hold their governments accountable to protect universally recognized human rights, defenders are often harassed, detained, interrogated, imprisoned, tortured, and even killed for doing their work. The State Department’s objective is to enable human rights defenders to promote and defend human rights without hindrance or undue restriction and free from fear of retribution against them or their families.

If you require Embassy support, please email HRDSupportJapan@state.gov.
