NEWAGE is a direction-sensitive direct dark matter search experiment with a three-dimensional gaseous tracking detector (μ-TPC). Our goals are detection of the dark matter-nucleus scattering signal and the investigation of kinematics of the dark matter in the Galaxy. A dark matter search experiment with the NEWAGE-0.3b' detector was performed from Jul. 2013 to Aug. 2016 (RUN14 to Run17). The total live time is 230.16 days which is about 8 times larger than that of our previous measurement. In the analysis, the event selection was improved and the background was reduced to about 1/3 at 50 keV. This work is important to investigate the properties of the dark matter in the Galaxy in the future dark matter research.
