Using AKARI, the first Japanese satellite dedicated to infrared astronomy, we conducted multi-band large-area surveys around the ecliptic poles. The north ecliptic pole (NEP) is the best region for AKARI which has a sunsynchronous orbit that allows it conduct legacy surveys with all AKARI bands, i.e. nine bands in 2 – 24 μm and 4 bands in 65 – 160 μm. We prove that this survey, which has such unprecedented infrared wavelength coverage, is certainly unique and useful to search out new galaxy populations such as ”PAH-luminous” galaxies.
