The purpose of the SEEDS project (PI: M. Tamura) is to conduct a direct imaging survey, searching for giant planets as well as protoplanetary/debris disks at a few to a few tens of AU regions around 500 nearby solar-type or more massive young stars with the combination of the Subaru 8.2m telescope, the new high-contrast instrument HiCIAO, and the adaptive optics system AO188. After instrument performance verification, the SEEDS survey successfully started in October 2009. We have already detected many companion candidates to be followed-up, and clear and much better detections of disks or details of known disks structures. In this contribution, we will outline our goal, current status, early results, and future instrumentation plans.
