Also known by its proper name, the National Research Institute on Human Evolution, The Diclonius Research Institute was based on an island stronghold off the coast of Kamakura in Kanagawa prefecture run, and owned by the Kakuzawa family, and was said to be their ancestral home.Diclonii that were not euthanized at birth were taken here to be experimented on. Tests were conducted on the strength of Diclonius vectors, including the firing of iron balls at the Diclonii to record the development of their vectors and the strength it would take to damage one. This was done in part to test anti-Diclonius weaponry. An underground grotto was used to keep the Kakuzawas' ultimate plan a secret, and also held their family graveyard. Kaede spent years in captivity there, until her escape, and her mother was also captured and brought there. Nana lived there until her battle with Lucy and subsequent move to the Maple House. Mariko spent virtually her entire short life there, as did her various clones. Many Diclonii bred without true faces lived in hellish conditions until their final uprising. The researchers and staff showed the girls kept there almost no regard. Finally, a combination of assault and infiltration by Allied Forces, Lucy/Kaede killing Chief Kakuzawa, and the unleashed fury of the tortured Clone Diclonii brought it down for the count. Of those at the institute in its final hours, only Arakawa, Anna Kakuzawa and an unnamed Agent survived.
