An experiment to investigate mitigation effects of impurity pellet injection on disruption generated runaway electrons was carried out in the JT-60U tokamak device. Deposition of impurity neon pellets into a post-disruption runaway plasma was observed with increment of bulk electron density. At the impurity pellet injection, decay time of runaway current became shorter as factor of $$sim$$2. There was an approximately linear relationship between changes in decay rate of runaway current and a photo-neutron signal which indicated loss of runaway electrons from the plasma. Consequently, enhanced loss of runaway electrons from a tokamak plasma, hence mitigation effect on them, by injection of impurity neon pellets was found.
