The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) project, launched as a generic underground research laboratory for crystalline rock in 1996, has proceeded in three overlapping phases, "Phase I: Surface-based investigation", "Phase II: Construction" and "Phase III: Operation". Currently, Phase II construction of research drifts in the MIU has been completed to the -500 m level. Phase III research activities have been conducted underground since 2010. The scientific and technical knowledge and know-how acquired in Phases I and II have been released via a web-based report "CoolRep H26". JAEA will continue to promote R&D activities in Phase III at the MIU to build technical confidence.
