This study aimed to evaluate the impact of aerosol on East Asia, especially on mortality with epidemiological method. We collected data on particulate matter concentration in major cities in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. We observed the influence of transboundary pollution on the particulate matter concentration in Kyushu area such as Fukuoka, but the influence was small in Tokyo. Effect on mortality was not significant, but Fukuoka tended to have higher mortality.
