KamLAND-Zen is a neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) search experiment using xenon 136 and ultra-low background environment of KamLAND (Kamioka Liquid scintillator Anti-Neutrino Detector). KamLAND-Zen collaboration has prepared the KamLAND-Zen 800 project with almost 750 kg of xenon and cleaner container for xenon loaded liquid scintillator. The container production was started in May 2017 and KamLAND-Zen 800 data acquisition was started in January 2019. In this paper, we will describe the KamLAND-Zen 800 project and report on the detector condition, data quality, the first analysis results, and the prospects.
