Relation between heat transport in the plasma core and toroidal rotation profile was examined in conventional ELMy H-mode plasmas in JT-60U. Energy confinement improvement is observed with toroidal rotation which increases in co-direction with respect to the plasma current. Heat transport in the plasma core varies while sustaining self-similar temperature profile in the variation of toroidal rotation profiles. Large increase in heat conduction imposes the resilient profile of ion temperature, under which local effect of toroidal rotation profile on the scale length of ion temperature gradient is very weak. When the pedestal temperature was fixed between the cases of co and counter-NBI by adjusting the plasma density, the identical temperature profiles were obtained in spite of totally different toroidal rotation profiles.
