The world's largest (1000 ton) liquid scintillator detector KamLAND has been challenging low energy neutrino detection such as reactor neutrinos and geologically produced neutrinos (geoneutrinos) since its operation started in January 2002. KamLAND is now going to start the direct measurement of 7Be solar neutrinos. In this report recent results and the status of KamLAND including on-going activities aiming at the solar neutrino detection are reported.
