report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 140419A (Marshall et al., GCNC 16118)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the Murikabushi 1m telescope of Ishigakijima Astronomical

The observation started on 2014-04-19 12:40:26 UT (~8.6 h after the burst).
We detected the previously reported afterglow (Marshall et al., GCNC 16118;
Zheng et al., GCNC 16119) in all the three bands.

Photometric results of the OT are listed below.
We used SDSS catalog for flux calibration.
