We present here the Large-scale Cryogenic Gravitational wave Telescope (LCGT) project which is aimed to improve the sensitivity of the existing gravitational wave projects by ten times. LCGT is the project constructing the km-scale gravitational wave detector in Japan succeeding the TAMA project, which adopts cryogenic mirrors with a higher power laser. We are planing to build it in an underground site in Kamioka mine. If its target sensitivity is attained, we will be able to catch a few events per month.
