The Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) cesiated rf-driven H$$^-$$ ion source (IS), whose requirements are a peak beam intensity of 60mA within normalized emittances of 1.5 $$pi$$mm$$cdot$$mrad both horizontally and vertically, a flat top beam duty factor of 1.25% (500 $$mu$$s$$ times$$ 25 Hz) and a life-time of longer than 1month, has been successfully operated for about one year. The results of the fine-tuning to minimize the emittances of the J-PARC-IS with plasma chamber #3, which had the largest emittances with initial settings among four plasma chambers, will be presented in this paper. The rod-filter-filed will be finely tuned by selecting magnets with slightly different field strengths and/or changing gap-lengths. The dependence of the beam-hole-diameter on the emittances will be also presented. The tuning procedure to improve the emittances is one of the most important technologies for the IS of the high-energy and high-intensity accelerator.
