Abstract: © The Author(s) 2017. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Astronomical Society of Japan. All rights reserved. We present an unprecedentedly large catalog consisting of 2230 ≳ L∗ Lyα emitters (LAEs) at z = 5.7 and 6.6 on the 13.8 and 21.2 deg2 sky, respectively, that are identified by the SILVERRUSH program with the first narrow-band imaging data of the Hyper Suprime- Cam (HSC) survey. We confirm that the LAE catalog is reliable on the basis of 96 LAEs whose spectroscopic redshifts are already determined by this program and previous studies. This catalogue is also available online. Based on this catalogue, we derive the rest-frame Lyα equivalent-width distributions of LAEs at z - 5.7-6.6 that are reasonably explained by the exponential profiles with scale lengths of - 120-170A, showing no significant evolution from z - 5.7 to z - 6.6. We find that 275 LAEs with large equivalent widths (LEWs) of >240 A are candidates of young metal poor galaxies and AGNs. We also find that the fraction of LEW LAEs to all LAEs is 4% and 21% at z - 5.7 and z - 6.6, respectively. Our LAE catalog includes 11 Lyα blobs (LABs) that are LAEs with spatially extended Lyα emission with a profile that is clearly distinguished from those of stellar objects at the ≳3σ level. The number density of the LABs at z = 6-7 is ∼10-7-10-6 Mpc-3, being ∼10-100 times lower than those claimed for LABs at z - 2-3, suggestive of disappearing LABs at z ≳ 6, albeit with the different selection methods and criteria for the low and high-z LABs.
