We review recent progress in the HAL QCD method, which was recently proposed to investigate hadron interactions in lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The strategy to extract the energy-independent non-local potential in lattice QCD is explained in detail. The method is applied to study nucleon-nucleon, nucleon-hyperon, hyperon-hyperon, and meson-baryon interactions. Several extensions of the method are also discussed.
