This volume outlines the exciting opportunities in hadron physics which have been created by the Japan Hadron Facility (JHF), a major joint initiative between KEK and JAERI. The topics covered include unprecedented possibilities of studying strange matter, neutrino oscillations and hadron structure. The close interaction with lattice QCD is emphasized.
