We proposed a new experimental project which equips Emulsion Cloud Chamber (ECC) as a main detector in order to study low energy neutrino-nucleus interactions in detail and explore a possible existence of sterile neutrinos. First of all, a test experiment (J-PARC T60) is implemented to check the performance of newly developed emulsion gel, optimize the detector structure, and demonstrate the neutrino analysis with ultimate position resolution. Anti neutrino beam was exposed to a few kg iron and water target ECC and a 60kg iron target ECC at J-PARC. From last summer, the analysis based on several thousands of anti-neutrino interactions accumulated in ECC was started. In this paper, the status of the measurements and the future prospects will be given.
