The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the MOOD system of Japanese, and then to identify Evidentiality as the subdomain of Modalization, using the framework of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL, mainly based on Halliday and Matthiessen (2014)). Under the SFL framework, the MOOD system is realized within the domain of the Interpersonal metafunction. Compared with the English counterpart, the Japanese MOOD system is idiosyncratic in that Politeness and Honorification are defined under the rubric of Free clauses, together with Comment, Subject presumption and Mood types. The number of the subdivisions of Modalisation is four including Evidentiality, and that of Modulation is five.
