An experiment on the coupling of the flux-flow type Josephson oscillator to SIS detectors by inductive coupling scheme has been carried out. Radiated powers from the Josephson oscillator were detected by an array of Josephson tunnel junctions fabricated on top of the upper electrode of the oscillator. The thickness of the common Electrode was made thin enough to allow inductive coupling through the electrode. The maximum value of the obtained voltage amplitude of the emitted wave from the oscillator was 1.7mV. which is in reasonable agreement with the theoretical one. The present method can be an efficient coupling scheme between the Josephson oscillator and external circuits.
