report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 100901A (Immler et al., GCN 11159)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the MITSuME 50cm telescope of Okayama Astrophysical Observatory.
The observation started on 2010-09-1 13:36:08 UT (~2.0 min after
the burst).  We detected the previously reported afterglow
(Immler et al., GCN 11159; Guidorzi et al., GCN 11160;
Klunko et al., GCN 11162; Ivanov et al., GCN 11165;
Andreev et al., GCN 11166, GCN 11168; De Cia et al., GCN 11170)
in all the three bands. Our results show that the brightness of
the afterglow began to increase at ~0.14 days after the burst.


Photometric results and three sigma upper limits of the OT are
listed below. We used GSC2.3 catalog for flux calibration.
