Aerosol and precipitation samples were obtained at the summit of Mt. Fuji, the highest peak (3776m a.s.l.) in Japan, in the summers of 1997, 1998, and 1999. The mountaintop might be affected by valley wind during the afternoon, but is located in the free troposphere during the morning. The temporal variations of chemical species in the aerosol and precipitation samples correspond with meteorological conditions. The in the aerosol and precipitation exhibits high concentration with low temperature air mass, indicating the influence of long range transport from the Asian Continent. The contribution of the free troposphere to the chemical species obtained at the summit is estimated to be at least 30% during the summer season.
