The test blanket module (TBM), water cooled pebble bed type, which is to be installed in ITER has been designed in JAEA. The TBM is made up of water cooling system with a kind of low activation ferrite, beryllium as neutron breeder, $$^{6}$$Li enriched Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$ or Li$$_{2}$$O pebble as tritium breeding material. To evaluate the nuclear properties, we have carried out some DT neutronics experiments with TBM mock up assemblies in the Fusion Neutronics Source (FNS) and one of the TBM nuclear properties, the tritium production rate (TPR), in the Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$ layer has been clarified by means of a liquid scintillation counter method with Li$$_{2}$$CO$$_{3}$$ pellets or Li$$_{2}$$O pebbles.
