We measured alpha emitters obtained from a reactor building in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) by using an alpha particle imaging detector. For developing the detector, we used a verythin (0.05-mm-thick) a cerium-doped Gd$$_{3}$$(Ga,Al)$$_{5}$$O$$_{12}$$ (Ce:GAGG) scintillator and silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) arrays as the photodetector. The floor of the reactor building in FDNPP was wiped off by using smear papers, and the radioactivity of these papers was measured by the alpha particle imaging detector. The alpha spectrum was in the energy range of 5-6 MeV, which corresponds to the alpha particle energy of $$^{238}$$Pu (5.5 MeV). Moreover, the peak of $$^{241}$$Am was identified by gamma spectrum measurement. Based on these results, we report actual findings of alpha emitters in the FDNPP reactor buildings originating from nuclear fuels.
