J-PARC E15 experiment aims to search for the lightest kaonic nuclei, namely K-pp bound states, using in-flight (K-, n) reactions. The advantage of this experiment is to perform exclusive measurement by missing mass study using the primary neutrons and invariant mass spectroscopy via such decay as K-pp→Λp→ pπ-p, simultaneously. In this report, an overview of this experiment and the current status are presented.
