This report introduces the scientific drilling project “NanTroSEIZE (Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment)” proposed for the IODP (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program). NanTroSEIZE is a large, international, multidisciplinary scientific project that required long-term planning and implementation. The project involved almost two decades of planning and may continue for another decade while carrying out drilling, coring, and long-term borehole monitoring. This large scientific project has now officially started, and we expect that the resulting scientific findings will be of international significance.
