We report new measurements of absolute fluxes of atmospheric muons at mountain altitude. The measurements were carried out with the BESS detector at the top of Mt. Norikura, 2 770 m above sea level, in Japan. The overall errors were less than 10%. The measured results are discussed in comparison with theoretical calculations.
