We report a measurement of cross section σ(νμ+nucleus→μ-+X) and the first measurements of the cross section σ(ν¯μ+nucleus→μ++X) and their ratio R(σ(ν¯)σ(ν)) at (anti) neutrino energies below 1.5 GeV. We determine the single momentum bin cross section measurements, averaged over the T2K ν¯/ν-flux, for the detector target material (mainly carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and copper) with phase space restricted laboratory frame kinematics of θμ<32° and pμ>500  MeV/c. The results are σ(ν¯)=(0.900±0.029(stat)±0.088(syst))×10-39 and σ(ν)=(2.41±0.022(stat)±0.231(syst))×10-39 in units of cm2/nucleon and R(σ(ν¯)σ(ν))=0.373±0.012(stat)±0.015(syst).
