Measurements of the chemical composition of fog water at Murododaira (altitude, 2,450 m), near the summit of Mt. Tateyama near the coast of the Japan Sea, were performed during the summers (late July and August) of 2004 and 2008 and the autumns (September and early October) of 2008 and 2009. Fog water was also sampled at Bijodaira (altitude, 977 m) and Midagahara (altitude, 1,930 m), on the western slope of Mt. Tateyama, in the autumn of 2009. With these results, the AA. discuss the summer and autumn chemical characteristics (chemical climatology), especially the anthropogenic species, of the fog water sampled at the western slope of Mt. Tateyama, which faces the Asia continent. They also describe the characteristics of seasalt components in the fog water
