About にて

にて is often considered as its own stand-alone particle, despite originally being a mix of に, and the conjunction particle, て. When combined, にて becomes a formal case-marking particle that is used in the same way as で. This means that it can convey the meaning of 'with (A)', 'by (A)', 'at (A)', or 'using (A)'.
にて will primarily appear following nouns that illustrate a means, method, time, location, reason, or origin that the speaker wants to highlight.
  • 明日(あす)(きん)時計(どけい)にて集合(しゅうごう)しましょう。
    Let's meet tomorrow at the Golden Clock.
  • 当店(とうてん)午前(ごぜん)9()にて開店(かいてん)いたします。
    This store will open at 9:00 a.m.
  • 予約(よやく)をされる場合(ばあい)電話(でんわ)にて連絡(れんらく)ください。
    If you want to make a reservation, please make one by phone.
As this grammar structure is formal, it will primarily be seen in writing, or heard in announcements. で will be the far more natural choice in casual conversation.

Examples

  • 明日(あした)東京駅(とうきょうえき)にて()いしましょう。

    Tomorrow, let's meet at Tokyo Station.

  • 面接(めんせつ)本社(ほんしゃ)にて(おこな)います。

    The interview will take place at the company headquarters.

  • 午後(ごご)五時(ごじ)にて閉店(へいてん)いたします。

    We will close (the shop) at five in the afternoon.

  • これにて一件(いっけん)落着(らくちゃく)

    With this, the case is closed.

    When I saw this grammar point, my first thought was “what’s the difference between this and で?”.
    It seems like this could use a grammar note, similar to this quote from the Wasabi reading:

    You can use にて or をもって to indicate the way something is carried out. They are interchangeable with the particle で, however, にて or をもって is preferred in formal writing.

    Does this grammar point need the 硬 mark?
