The Super-Kamiokande detector, a 50 kiloton water Cherenkov detector in Japan, has been providing fascinating results. It played key roles in the study of neutrino oscillation including the first ever evidence for atmospheric neutrino oscillations. We will present the latest results and future prospects of Super-Kamiokande and the next generation project Hyper-Kamiokande, which is both a microscope to observe elementary particles and a telescope to observe the Sun and supernovas.
