Neutrinos are ghost-like particles that can escape from places that are otherwise completely unaccessible—including the interior of exploding stars. In this talk, I will introduce Hyper-Kamiokande, a next generation neutrino detector that is under construction in Japan. I will discuss its neutrino astronomy programme, with a special focus on supernova neutrinos. Finally, I will close by introducing the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS), which will combine the powers of neutrino physicists and electromagnetic astronomers to extract as much knowledge as possible from the next supernova in our Milky Way.
