The high voltage (HV) bushing in ITER NBI acts as a feed through for electric power and cooling water from the -1 MV power supply in pressurized SF$$_{6}$$ gas atmosphere to negative ion source / accelerator inside vacuum. The HV bushing has five-stage structure each of which consists of a large bore ceramic ring with 1.56 m in diameter as the insulator. The ceramic is metalized and brazed with Kovar plate and then metal flanges to form the vacuum boundary as a whole. However, there is no practical example of brazing with such a large ceramic. JAEA has successfully accomplished brazing of the world's largest ceramic with Kovar plate for the first time through sample tests and mechanical analyses. Following the result, manufacturing of a mock-up simulating one-stage of the HV bushing has been completed and its vacuum insulation test is now ongoing. Electric field design inside the HV bushing for -1 MV insulation is also ongoing. In this conference, recent progresses above are reported.
