A large amount of contaminated rubble was generated by the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (F1NPS). For safe decommissioning of F1NPS, it is important to evaluate the composition and concentration of radionuclides in the rubble. To characterize the rubble collected at F1NPS, radiochemical analysis was conducted. From the rubble collected from reactor buildings, $$^3$$H, $$^{14}$$C, $$^{60}$$Co, $$^{63}$$Ni, $$^{79}$$Se, $$^{90}$$Sr, $$^{99}$$Tc, $$^{129}$$I, $$^{137}$$Cs, $$^{154}$$Eu, $$^{238, 239+240}$$Pu, $$^{241}$$Am and $$^{244}$$Cm were detected. The radioactivity concentrations of $$^{60}$$Co, $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{238}$$Pu are correlated that of $$^{137}$$Cs. The radioactive ratio of $$^{60}$$Co/$$^{137}$$Cs, $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{137}$$Cs and $$^{238}$$Pu/$$^{137}$$Cs were similar between the rubble collected from 1st floor and 5th floor of unit 1 reactor building. This result implied that regardless of sampling location in reactor building, the radioactive ratios of $$^{60}$$Co/$$^{137}$$Cs, $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{137}$$Cs and $$^{238}$$Pu/$$^{137}$$Cs were consistent.
