We present the first evidence for B->D K, D->K^+ pi^- and measurements of related observables used in the Atwood-Dunietz-Soni (ADS) method to determine the CKM parameter phi_3 (also known as gamma). Measurement of related B->D^* K^- modes are also reported. We report the first measurement of phi_3 using model-independent analysis of the Dalitz plot of B->D K, D->K_S^0 pi^+ pi^-. These results are based on the full 710 fb^-1 Belle B\bar{B} data sample collected at the KEKB e+e- collider.
