Abstract: The Hinode mission status was briefly explained in this presentation. The Hinode spacecraft has been operated for two years after the launch on 23 September 2006 (JST). All the three telescopes are continuing to observe the Sun with the expected excellent performance. The Sun has been quiet for most of the latest one year and Hinode’s observations were mainly focused on the quiet Sun studies. Spacecraft functions are good except for an anomaly in X-band telemetry downlink. The X-band downlink anomaly gives a restriction to the volume of science data but we have almost established scientific operations baseline since the transition to S-band backup high-speed downlink
