and N. Kawai(Tokyo Tech) report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 110407A (Wolf et al., GCN 11894)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the MITSuME 50cm telescope of Okayama Astrophysical Observatory
and the Murikabushi 1m telescope of Ishigakijima Astronomical
Observatory.

We did not find any new point source within the enhanced XRT error
circle (Evans et al., GCNC 11903) in all the three bands. We
could not detect the previously reported afterglow
(Chuang et al., GCN 11899).

Three sigma upper limits of the OT are listed below. We used
SDSS catalog for flux calibration.
