The Fusion Council of Japan has established the long-term research and development program of the blanket in 1999. In the program, the solid breeder blanket was selected as the primary candidate blanket of the fusion power demonstration plant in Japan. In the program, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) has been nominated as a leading institute of the development of solid breeder blankets, in collaboration with universities, for the near term power demonstration plant, while, universities including National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) are assigned mainly to develop advanced blankets for longer term power plant development. In the long term research and development program, ITER blanket module testing is identified as the most important milestone, by which integrity of candidate blanket concepts and structures are evaluated. In Japan, universities, NIFS and JAERI cover a variety of types of blanket development. This paper presents a plan and strategy for ITER blanket module testing in Japan.
