We study the quantum simulation of Z2 lattice gauge theory in 2+1 dimensions. The real-time evolution of the system with two static charges, i.e., two Wilson lines, is considered. The dual variable formulation, the so-called Wegner duality, is utilized for reducing redundant gauge degrees of freedom. We show some results obtained by the simulator and the real device of a quantum computer.
