We will measure the x-rays from kaonic 3He and 4He3d→2p transition by using silicon drift detectors. Our precision goal is set to 1 eV to provide crucial information on the kaon-nucleus strong interaction in the low energy limit. The experiment is to be performed as one of the first experiment in the J-PARC hadron facility (J-PARC E17). An overview and the present status of the experiment are presented.
