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

We observed the field of GRB 130427A (Masell et al., GCNC 14448)
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 detected the previously reported afterglow (Elenin et al., GCNC 14450)
in all the three bands. Photometric results of the OT are listed below.
We used SDSS catalog for flux calibration.

Okayama Astrophysical Observatory:
The observation started on 2013-04-28 11:29:25 UT (~1.15 days after the burst).
