Uncontrolled beam loss caused by foil scattering of the circulating beam causes high residual radiation at the injection area of J-PARC 3-GeV RCS. It is thus one big issue towards beam intensity ramp up and operation at the designed 1 MW beam power. We studied to reduce foil hits by minimizing the vertical injection beam size at the foil and using a smaller vertical foil size. We obtained 30% reduction of the foil hits, consistent with numerical simulation and it has already been implemented for 700-KW operation at present. The present result thus plays an important role to realize and maintain a stable operation at 1-MW beam power in the RCS.
