The KL and muon detection subsystem (KLM) of the BELLE experiment at the KEK-B asymmetric B-factory is described. The system consists of glass-electrode resistive plate counters installed within the segmented flux return iron of the BELLE superconducting solenoid. The design and construction of the detectors, including the gas distribution system and readout electronics, are described in detail. The operating characteristics and performance with cosmic rays and e+ e- collision data are presented.
