Absolute concentrations and the depth profiles of D in plasma-facing graphite tiles used in JT-60U were determined by means of the D($$^{3}$$He, p)$$^{4}$$He resonant nuclear reaction. The analyzed samples were not exposed to H discharges before air ventilation. The maximum depth of analysis is about 1.4 $$times$$ 10$$^{24}$$ carbon (C) atoms/m$$^{2}$$, corresponding to a linear depth of 16 $$mu$$m for the density of 1.7 $$times$$ 10$$^{3}$$ kg/m$$^{3}$$. The highest D concentration was found at the inboard mid-plane of first wall area. The maximum D concentration is D/C=0.13, and the concentration decrease with the depth. The D retention within 16 $$mu$$m is 1.9 $$times$$ 10$$^{22}$$ D atoms/m$$^{2}$$. The D retentions in this paper were about 2$$sim$$9 times larger than previous samples, which were located on the same area and exposed to the hydrogen discharges. This indicates the H plasma discharges were effective to remove the D (and T) from graphite tiles in the first wall area.
