We have carried out an experimental search for the simplest kaonic nucleus, $$K^{-}pp$$, by using the $$d(pi^{+},K^{+})$$ reaction at $$p$$ = 1.69 GeV/$$c$$. The differential cross section of this reaction with covering a wide missing-mass range from the $$Lambda$$ production threshold to the $$Lambda$$(1405)/$$Sigma$$(1385) region has been measured for the first time. The inclusive missing-mass shape of the $$Lambda$$ and $$Sigma$$ production region was understood with a simple quasi-free picture except for an enhancement at 2.13 GeV/$$c^{2}$$ due to a $$Sigma N$$ cusp. An obtained peak attributed to $$Y^{*}$$ production was significantly shifted to the low mass side compared with the simulation by -24 MeV/$$c^{2}$$.
