Relation between the toroidal rotation velocities in the core and edge regions has been investigated in H-mode plasmas with small external torque input from the viewpoint of momentum transport. The toroidal rotation velocity in the core region gradually varies on a timescale after a rapid change in the toroidal rotation velocity in the edge region at the L-H transition. In steady state, a linear correlation between the core- and edge-rotation is observed in H-mode plasmas when the ion pressure gradient is small. The rotation profiles with a large have been reproduced in the core region by adopting a residual stress term proposed in this paper. Parameter dependencies of the edge-rotation are investigated at a constant ripple loss power, ripple amplitude and the plasma current. A reduction in the CTR-rotation is observed with decreasing the ion temperature gradient. Here CTR refers in the counter-$$I$$$$_{rm P}$$ direction.
