NEWAGE is a direction-sensitive WIMP search experiment using micro pixel chamber. After our first underground measurement at Kamioka in 2009, we constructed a new detector, which was designed to have a twice larger target volume with low background material, a lowered threshold of 50 keV, an improved data acquisition system. In 2013, dark matter search in Kamioka underground laboratory was performed. We have succeeded to lower the background level by about one order of magnitude.
