  New muon g-2 experiment at J-PARC is aimed to improve the precise measurement of the muon g-2. In this experiment, the ultra-cold muons created in the muonium target region is reaccelerated to around 300MeV/c in momentum (210 MeV kinetic energy) to then be injected into the muon g-2 storage ring to measure the decay products depending on the muon spin. The linac has advantage over circular accelerators to shorten the reacceleration time in the limited life time of muon. The muon linac consists of the initial acceleration (to 0.01 of v/c), bunching section (0.01 to 0.08 of v/c), low beta section (0.08 to 0.3 of v/c), middle beta section (0.3 to 0.7 of v/c) and high beta section (0.7 to 0.94 of v/c). As a part of the design consideration of this linac, we mainly present the simulation result of initial acceleration and further acceleration of muons with RFQ. An electric field is used to extract the ultra-cold muons from the laser ionization region and RF field is used to create some bunches and to accelerate to higher energies.
