Noborito (登戸?) is a neighborhood in Tama-ku, Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan just across the southwestern border of Tokyo on the Tama River and about 18 minutes south of Shinjuku on the Odakyu Odawara Line Express.
During World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army established its secret institute, the Number Nine Research Laboratory, for researching special weapons, such as balloon bombs, counterfeit bills, and other chemical and biological weapons. It is called the "Noborito Institute" now, and several houses are used by Meiji University.
