Monthly deposition samples were collected in the NCL which is located at about 115km south of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP, and the radioactive nuclides were analyzed. Although radionuclides such as $$^{131}$$I (T$$_{1/2}$$=8.02 days), $$^{129m}$$Te-$$^{129}$$Te (T$$_{1/2}$$=33.6 days) and $$^{132}$$Te-$$^{132}$$I (T$$_{1/2}$$=3.2 days) with $$^{134}$$Cs and $$^{137}$$Cs were observed by $$gamma$$ spectrometry at the early time of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP accident, only $$^{134}$$Cs and $$^{137}$$Cs were detected as of September 2012. The annual deposition of $$^{134}$$Cs and $$^{137}$$Cs were about 19,000 and 17,000 Bq/m$$^{2}$$, respectively in March 2011 - February 2012 after the accident. Moreover, $$^{90}$$Sr was detected in some samples. Monthly $$^{90}$$Sr deposition in March 2011 was 5.1 Bq/m$$^{2}$$ month and then decreased after that. On the other hand, $$^{239,240}$$Pu concentration was the same level with the concentration before the accident.
