Abstract: The T2K (Tokai-to-Kamioka) is a long baseline neutrino experiment designed to study various parameters that rule neutrino oscillations, with an intense beam of muon neutrinos. A near detector complex (ND280) is used to constrain non-oscillated flux and hence to predict the expected number of events in the far detector (Super-Kamiokande). The difference in the target material between the far (water) and near (scintillator, hydrocarbon) detectors leads to the main non-canceling systematic uncertainty for the oscillation analysis. In order to reduce this uncertainty a new water grid and scintillator detector, WAGASCI, has been proposed. The detector will be operated at the J-PARC neutrino beam line with the main physics goal to measure the charged current neutrino cross section ratio between water and hydrocarbon with a few percent accuracy. Further physics program may include high-precision measurements of different charged current neutrino interaction channels. The concept of the new detector will be covered together with the actual construction plan.
