Experimental plans for strangeness nuclear physics at the J-PARC hadron facility are summarized. High-intensity K- beams of ∼2GeV/c available at the K1.8 beam line will open a new era in the studies of double strangeness nuclear systems. Spectroscopy of hypernuclei, the study of hypernuclei, and measurement of-atomic X-rays are planned to reveal baryon-baryon interactions with S (strangeness)= -2 systems. In addition, γ -ray spectroscopy of hypernuclei, spectroscopy of neutron-rich hypernuclei, the study of weak decays of hypernuclei, and hyperon-nucleon scattering experiments, which are planned to be performed at the K1.8 and K1.1 beam lines, will clarify the details of S = -1 baryon-baryon interactions as well as the nuclear medium effects on baryon properties. A future plan to extend the hadron hall is also .described.
