The experimental program on the JFT-2M tokamak started with the first plasma on April 27, 1983, and was completed in March 2004. In the series of experiments for 21 yr, many significant results in fusion energy research and plasma physics have been produced. As the first paper of this special issue on JFT-2M, this paper provides an overview of the JFT-2M program.
