In this study, the retentions of hydrogen isotopes (H and D) in the gaps in JT-60U are clarified. Carbon tiles used in 1992-2004 were poloidally and toroidally taken out from outboard first wall in JT-60U to measure the retentions. The H and D retentions in the samples were measured by thermal desorption spectrometry (TDS). The H+D retention in the top side was higher than that of the bottom side, which might be due to thicker re-deposited carbon layers on the surface of the top side. The retentions in the surface of the side surfaces were slightly lower than that in the plasma facing surface where the retention was saturated to be 3-4e22 atoms/m$$^{2}$$. The retention rate was evaluated to be 3e17 H+D atoms/m$$^{2}$$/s from the measured retentions in two different discharge times by assuming the retention to increase linearly with the discharge time.
