The JSNS2 (J-PARC Sterile Neutrino Search at J-PARC Spallation Neutron Source) experiment aims to search for neutrino oscillations over a 24 m short baseline at J-PARC . The JSNS2 inner detector is filled with 17 tons of gadolinium-loaded liquid scintillator (LS) and both the intermediate γ-catcher and the optically separated outer veto are filled with un-loaded LS . Optical photons from scintillation are observed by 120 Photomultiplier Tubes (PMTs). A total of 130 PMTs for the JSNS2 experiment were either donated by other experiments or purchased from Hamamatsu. Donated PMTs were purchased around 10 years ago, therefore JSNS2 did pre-calibration of the PMTs including the purchased PMTs. 123 PMTs demonstrated acceptable performance for the JSNS2 experiment, and 120 PMTs were installed in the detector.
