This paper presents an overview of ITER-supporting materials R&D activities and major achievements in Japan during the period from the Co-ordinated Technical Activities to date. In view of the completed engineering design of ITER during the Engineering Design Activities period, R&D efforts since then have been focused on: those for reduction of component fabrication cost; those in support of domestic preparations of a structural technical code for construction; and those necessary for operation, and been extended to component-level testing rather than pure material testing. They cover materials R&D for in-vessel components, vacuum vessel, cryogenic steels of superconducting magnets and diagnostics components. Major achievements in each R&D area are highlighted and their impact or implication to the design, construction and operation of ITER is presented.
