The energy spacing between the spin-doublet bound state of $$^4_{Lambda}$$He$$(1^+,0^+)$$ was determined to be $$1406 pm 2 pm 2$$ keV, by measuring $$gamma$$ rays for the $$1^+ to 0^+$$ transition with a high efficiency germanium detector array in coincidence with the $$^4{rm He}(K^-,pi^-)^4_{Lambda}$$He reaction at J-PARC. In comparison to the corresponding energy spacing in the mirror hypernucleus $$^4_{Lambda}$$H, the present result clearly indicates the existence of charge symmetry breaking (CSB) in $$Lambda N$$ interaction. By combining the energy spacings with the known ground-state binding energies, it is also found that the CSB effect is large in the $$0^+$$ ground state but is vanishingly small in the $$1^+$$ excited state, demonstrating that the $$Lambda N$$ CSB interaction has spin dependence.
