In order to investigate the optimal design of a proton radiotherapy facility, neutron doses behind shielding walls were measured at the proton therapy center in Fukui prefectural hospital. The radiation monitors, DARWIN, WENDI-2, and REM, were used to assess the neutron doses. The doses obtained by DARWIN and WENDI-2 agreed well. It was found that the REM monitor underestimate the doses due to the lack of sensitivity to neutrons whose energy is above several tens of MeV.
