Oscillation of nu_mu to nu_e driven by non-zero theta_13 mixing angle is expected to be influenced by matter effect, especially in the multi-GeV energy region. Since matter effect occurs on either neutrino or anti-neutrino depending on mass hierarchy, it is possible to deduce mass hierarchy by investigating nu_e oscillation separately for neutrino and anti-neutrino. In this talk, we will report on the study of mass hierarchy determination using atmospheric neutrino data along with the latest oscillation analysis result.
