The construction of a new backward Compton gamma ray beam line at SPring-8 in Japan, LEPS2, has been started from the year 2010. The new beam line will provide a highly polarized photon beam up to 3 GeV with 10 times higher intensity than that of LEPS1 facility. We will construct a 4$\pi$ detector which can detect both of charged particles and photons. The photon beam will be available from the year 2011, and a variety of hadron physics with strange quarks are planed. In this talk, the status of the construction of the LEPS2 facility and physics programs are reported.
