The J-PARC E15 experiment will be performed to search for the simplest kaonic nuclear bound state, K- pp, by the in-flight 3He(K-,n) reaction. The exclusive measurement can be performed by a simultaneous measurement of the missing mass using the primary neutron and the invariant mass via the expected decay, K- pp → Λp → pπ- p. In this report, an overview of the experiment and the preparation status are presented.
