We report the feasbility of detection of top quark pairs in a photon-photon collider. A realistic luminosity and detection efficiency were estimated using a simulation with a set of accelerator and detector parameters. It was found that about 1000 events can be expected with the signal to noise ratio of 10 in a year of operation.
