Abstract: The AKARI far-infrared deep cosmological survey has been carried out toward the region with the lowest cirrus density in the whole sky, near the South Ecliptic Pole (AKARI Deep Survey South: ADF-S). We present the details of this survey, and show the obtained galaxy number counts. More than 2200 galaxies were detected down to a flux level of 10 mJy at 90 μm, and suggest the necessity for a new model to explain galaxy evolution.
