Hyper-Kamiokande (HK) is a megaton scale water Cherenkov detector proposed to be built in Japan. HK is the logical continuation of the highly successful program of neutrino physics and proton decay searches using a water Cherenkov technique. HK will study the CP asymmetry in neutrino oscillations using the neutrino and anti-neutrino beams produced at J-PARC. With an exposure of 7.5 MW x 10^7 seconds, delta can be measured to better than 19 degrees at all values, and CP violation can be detected with more than 3 sigma significance for 76% of values of delta. Studies of the sensitivity of this detector to neutrino oscillation parameters, CP violating phase, matter effect, and mass hierarchy will be presented.
