The 2ND Service School, JMSDF is located upon the grounds of the Imperial Japanese Navy Torpedo School that was founded during the Meiji Period (1868-1912). During the beginning of the Showa Period (late 1920s), communications research took place at the school, and in 1952, the command for the Maritime Safety Security Force, the precursor of the Maritime Self-Defense Force, was established. Visitors can learn more about the history and development of the school at the Naval Historical Archives.
