The Telescope Array (TA) experiment has been conducting observations to reveal the origin of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). The TA detector is loacted in Utah, USA and is the largest UHECR observatory in the Northern Hemisphere, consisting of an array of 507 particle surface detectors and three fluorescence telescope stations. Here the recent results on spectrum, composition, and anisotropy of arrival directions of UHECRs obtained by the TA experiment are presented, including its extensions: TALE (TA Low Energy extension) and TAx4. Prospects for future UHECR observations is also discussed.
