Recently, there has been a tendency to improve seismic performance of building structure by installing a steel hysteretic damping device which is economically efficient and easy to install and maintain. However, for a reinforced concrete building, a set of complicated connecting hardware and braces to fix the steel hysteretic damping device yields deteriorated reliability in damping performance. Therefore, this study presents a method of directly embedding a Kagome damper, which was investigated in previous researches, into a concrete structure without additional connecting hardware. Moreover, in this study, a series of experiments conducted to provide a basis of the Kagome damper by confirming the seismic behavior for various embedded lengths. As a result, in a group of the embedded length of $1.0l_d$, the dampers were pulled out, while concrete breakout occurs. In a group of $2.0l_d$, neither pull-out nor concrete breakout occurred, while the dampers show stable behavior. Moreover, the buried length of $2.0l_d$ has 1.3 times better energy dissipation capacity. The system presented in this study can reduce the cost and period for installing, omitting making additional hardware.
