Neutron nuclear data of long lived fission products (LLFPs) have been required as basic data for the technology of reduce environmental impact involved in high level radioactive wastes (HLW). The innovative large project called by "Impusing Paradigm Change through Disruptive Technologies Program: ImPACT" have been started from October, 2014. In the ImPACT project, some research groups of JAEA engaged in the Project No.2 (Nuclear Reaction Data Measurements), and have started measurements of neutron capture cross-section at J-PARC/MLF/ANNRI. In our research, we selected cesium-135 ($$^{135}$$Cs) nuclide (half life: 2.3$$times$$10$$^{6}$$ yr.) among LLFPs in the HLW, and decided to measure the neutron capture cross-sections of $$^{135}$$Cs. When measurement, the $$^{135}$$Cs sample might contained cecium-137 ($$^{137}$$Cs) as impurities because it's impossible to chemically separate each other. To measure the cross-sections of $$^{135}$$Cs, there should be also needed to know the cross-sections of $$^{137}$$Cs. In this work, sample maintenance also has been examined especially for selen-79 ($$^{79}$$Se) nuclide among LLFPs having difficulty in sample preparations. In this oral session, the outline of our research project will be presented together with a research motivation, situations of past reported data, total schedules, progress, future plans, and some of high light data for neutron capture cross-section measurements.
