The production and transport processes of H$$^{0}$$ atoms are numerically simulated using a three-dimensional Monte Carlo transport code. The code was applied to the large JAEA 10 ampere negative ion source under the Cs-seeded condition to obtain a spatial distribution of surface-produced H$$^{-}$$ ions. In the H$$^{0}$$ atom transport process, the energy relaxation of the H$$^{0}$$ atoms, which affects the surface H$$^{-}$$ ion production rate, is taken into account. The result indicates that the surface H$$^{-}$$ ion production is enhanced near the high-electron-temperature region where H$$^{0}$$ atom production is localized.
