The magnetic structure of the intermetallic compound EuGa$$_{4}$$ was investigated using single-crystal neutron diffraction with TOF Laue technique on the new diffractometer SENJU at MLF of J-PARC. Despite of the high neutron absorption of Eu, a vast number of diffraction spots were observed without isotope enrichment. The magnetic reflections appeared at $$h + k + l$$ $$neq$$ 2$$n$$ below 16 K, indicating that the ordering vector is $$q$$ = (0, 0, 0). The continuous evolution of the magnetic reflection intensity below T$$_{N}$$ follows a squared Brillouin function for $$S$$ = 7/2. By adopting a wavelength-dependent absorption collection, the magnetic structure of EuGa$$_{4}$$ revealed that a nearly full magnetic moment of 6.4 $$mu$$B of Eu lies within the basal plane of the lattice.
