The J-PARC facility has been running an accelerator since 2007 and it has been about 10 years since. Since the facility is close to the coastline and is built on soft ground, it was hit hard by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. Maintenance of various infrastructures is required due to aftereffects and aging. In this report, we will report on the current situation of infrastructure (buildings, electric power, cooling water, air conditioning etc.) of J-PARC accelerator. We will also introduce future efforts to reduce the failure rate of equipment.
