Abstract
Hyper-Kamiokande is a next generation underground water Cherenkov detector based on the highly
successful Super-Kamiokande experiment. It will be capable of observing - far beyond the sensitivity
of the Super-Kamiokande detector - proton decay, atmospheric neutrinos, and neutrinos from astronomical
sources. It will also serve as a far detector, 295km away, of a long baseline neutrino experiment for the
$p \rightarrow e^+ \pi^0$ and $p \rightarrow \nu K^+$.
