A deep ice coring system for Dome Fuji project has been developed under a project coordinated by the National Institute of Polar Research. Three reports have been issued already, mainly about the development of the drill system. We report here on the drilling site and equipment such as winch, drilling cable, mast, control panels, chip caching tools (filter) and so on as well as the drill. This paper includes an outline of drilling site and work, progress of machine design and final specifications of the above equipment.
