The T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment using the neutrino beamline at the J-PARC facility in Japan. T2K measures the neutrino beam at two near detectors located 280 m from the target and again at Super-Kamiokande, 295 km away. With measurements of the oscillated neutrinos at Super-Kamiokande and constraints from the near detectors, T2K is able to provide high precision measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters. T2K provided the first evidence for a non-zero value of the mixing angle \theta_{13} and has continued improving its results with a joint fit to muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance samples. In 2015, T2K also released its first result on antineutrino oscillations. This work provides a summary of recent results in neutrino oscillation physics from T2K and also briefly discusses some of the other work done by T2K.
