The Belle II experiment is an upgrade of the Belle experiment that will
run at an instantaneous luminosity forty times higher than its
predecessor, and is projected to record 50 ab-1 of data.  Running at this
luminosity requires many changes, including the installation of new
sub-detectors.  The status of the construction and testing of Belle II
will be described, with a focus on the new time-of-propagation (TOP)
sub-detector used for particle identification, together with the motivation,
prospects, and schedule for the experiment.
