Hyper-Kamiokande is a water Cherenkov neutrino detector planned for the near future. Its fiducial volume is 25 times larger than that of Super-Kamiokande. Several photo-detector (PD) candidates, such as a 20-inch Hybrid Photo-Detector (HPD) with an avalanche diode are now being developed. Plans to test a smaller, 8-inch, version of this HPD in a 200-ton water Cherenkov detector loaded with Gadolinium are underway. Pre-calibration and performance evaluation of these 8-inch HPDs are being performed prior to their installation in the tank. The plan for HPD test inside of the 200-ton detector is introduced.
