Abstract: The next-generation B-factory experiment Belle II at the upgraded KEKB accelerator, SuperKEKB, is aiming to start physics data taking in 2018. It is an asymmetric e+e- collider that will operate with 40x the instantaneous luminosity of KEKB/Belle. The broad physics program includes physics with B and D mesons, muon and tau leptons, measurements using the method of radiative returns, and direct searches for New Physics. This talk will review the current status of the accelerator and the detector, and give an overview of planned searches for dark photons and light axions.
