Abstract
An updated overview of the 7 scientific instruments and 3 baseline instruments under construction for the 8.2-m Subaru telescope is presented with reference to papers addressed during this series of conferences. Somewhat detailed descriptions are given for Faint Object Camera And Spectrograph (FOCAS) and for COoled Mid Infrared Camera and Spectrograph (COMICS) that are not specifically reported in the conferences. The infrastructures for developing these instruments and the scope of scheduling the first light of these instruments are also mentioned.
