Elemental concentration in wild plants (fukinotou) collected in Takizawa village and Morioka city in Iwate prefecture has been determined by using a PIXE system at Nishina Memorial Cyclotron Center, Japan Radioisotope Association. We also analyzed the soils together with the wild plants in order to examine the relationship of elemental concentration between fukinotou and the soil of the sampled site. Although elemental concentrations of Pb and Cr in fukinotou show regional differences, there is no direct correlation between those and the soil on which they glow. The As concentration in most samples are less than 1 ppm. Concentrations of Al, Fe and Zn in fukinotou show no clear differences in comparison with commercially available vegetables, while Cu concentrations in most of the samples analyzed are fairly high in comparison with vegetables on the market. It is suggested that fukinotou has a property of concentrating copper selectively.
