Neutrino oscillations remain the only laboratory-demonstrated particle physics beyond the Standard Model, but despite almost 50 years having passed since the first experimental evidence emerging, we still do not have a complete description of the basic parameters governing the oscillations or an understanding of just how far beyond the Standard Model they take us. The talk will discuss the history, status, and plans of the T2K, Super Kamiokande, and Hyper Kamiokande projects - what they have told us about neutrinos, what the near term plans are for their enhancement, and where do we hope to go in years to come with even more ambitious detectors.
