The J-PARC E15 experiment aims to search for the lightest kaonic nuclear states, namely K- pp, using in-flight (K-, n) reaction on 3He. In this experiment, the missing mass in the (K-, n) reaction and the invariant mass of the decay such as K- pp → Λp → pπ- p will be measured simultaneously. In this article, the experimental feature and the present status are presented.
