The AKARI far-infrared deep survey has been carried out toward the region with the lowest cirrus density in the whole sky, near the South Ecliptic Pole. We present the details of this survey, and show the obtained galaxy counts. More than 2,200 galaxies were detected down to a flux level of 20 mJy, and suggest the necessity for a new model to explain galaxy evolution.
