Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, NIES tentatively close our facillity tour.
Updated information will be posted when the tour open again.
We sincerely appreciate your kind understanding and cooperation.

NIES holds Open Houses in April (during Science and Technology Week) and July (on the first Saturday of the summer holidays) during which the facilities of the institute are open to the public. Visitors can enjoy an extensive timetable of activities, facility tours and talks aimed at introducing the various research undertakings and other activities of NIES. An English language guided tour is also available during the Open House.

While NIES does not have any permanent exhibition facilities, tours of NIES for groups of between 5 and 20 persons can be arranged every Tuesday and Thursday (excluding public holidays). Applications for such tours can be accepted up to 3 months and no less than 2 weeks before the desired tour day.

In addition, groups of four persons and less (including lone applicants) can be accommodated on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month, between 14:00 and 15:30. Please note that there may be times when requests for tours for larger groups cannot be arranged.
