'Hyper-Kamiokande is a multi-purpose next generation neutrino experiment.rnThe detector is a two-layered cylindrical shape ultra-pure water tank, with its height of 64 m and diameter of 71 m.rnThe inner detector will be surrounded by 40,000 twenty-inch photosensors to detect water Cherenkov radiation due to the charged particles and provide our fiducial volume of 187 kt.rnThis detection technique is established by Kamiokande and Super-Kamiokande. As the successor of these experiments, Hyper-K will be located deep underground, 650 m below Mt. Tochibora at Kamioka in Japan to reduce cosmic-ray backgrounds.rnBesides our physics program with accelerator neutrino, atmospheric neutrino and proton decay, neutrino astrophysics is an important research topic for Hyper-K.rnWith its fruitful physics research programs, Hyper-K will play a critical role in the next neutrino physics frontier.rnIt will also provide important information via astrophysical neutrino measurements, i.e., solar neutrino, supernova burst neutrinos and supernova relic neutrino.rnHere, we will discuss the physics potential of Hyper-K neutrino astrophysics.'
