A dozen or so Japanese tourists a year have to be repatriated from the French capital, after falling prey to what's become known as "Paris syndrome".

That is what some polite Japanese tourists suffer when they discover that Parisians can be rude or the city does not meet their expectations.

The experience can apparently be too stressful for some and they suffer a psychiatric breakdown.

:lol:

That's why the japanese have built a dutch town in japan, so they don't have to come here and be disappointed.

"An encounter with a rude Parisian can be a shocking experience"


well, go in Las Vegas if you want to see a plastic, sanitized Paris, face de citron

I'm disappointed we're not doing better than 12 a year out of a million tourist... that's 0,00001%, clearly room for improvement here

12 a year with psychotic breakdowns. 50% vow never to come back to Paris. 25% vow to kill the next French person they see.

I haven't even been to France and i have a strong dislike for most Parisians. The ones i know are allright though. Come to think of it, maybe i'm the catalyst for that. Maybe that's my secret power: i can make any Parisian into a caring, loving individual.

exactly how can a person have a breakdown beause someone was rude to them?

Are they that fragile?

they need to build up some military and start attacking some people again.

Or the lack of quality of those videos. Is the britney video out yet?

I thought this thread would be about Paris Hilton's ability to turn any woman she hangs around with into a crazy slut.

The French should be glad the Japanese didn't react the same way as when they went to China.

I can't believe no one has asked if this is about Paris Hilton.
