We present the North Ecliptic Pole (NEP) Surveys with Infrared Camera (IRC) onboard the AKARI infrared satellite. Two NEP surveys were designed: NEP-Deep was deep and NEP-Wide was wide, but shallow. One of the unique characteristics of IRC is nine broad-band filters which cover the continuous wavelength from 2 to 26 μm and all IRC filters were used for both surveys. We also present the status of multi-wavelength follow-up.
