This article is the result of a research on the Japanese citizen Goro Miyazaki, a resident of Chile during World War II and his subsequent expulsion after being accused of carrying out activities against national interests. Considering this, the study carried out around this Japanese citizen, in an environment marked by xenophobic tendencies, racial and suspicion against any aspect that strained the declared Chilean neutrality in the world conflict, is presented. While it is not possible to strictly state Miyazaki's spy quality, if one can highlight the particularity of his case, to the extent that he was the only Japanese expelled at this time. The work is based on the review and analysis of written sources, notary and government files, highlighting Miyazaki's defense to prevent his expulsion.
