Description   The National Institute for Japanese Language consists of three research departments - the Department of Language Research, the Department of Teaching Japanese as a Second Language, and the Department of Language Information and Resources. These departments conduct scientific surveys and research on the Japanese language and the linguistic life of the Japanese people. The site is located in Tachikawa City, Tokyo, at the center of a block containing two other public facilities. Trees along the periphery of the site define its edge, act as a buffer, and contribute to a sense of calm on the block. The main access to the institute passes through a front garden, which doubles as a link to nearby facilities and a public space for the entire area. A secondary esplanade, weaving through trees, further integrates the surroundings and provides space for researchers to stroll or rest under the gentle shade of the foliage.
