We observed the field of GRB 140907A (H. A. Krimm et al., GCN 16788)
with Nishiharima Infrared Camera (NIC) attached to the Nayuta 2-m
telescope at the Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory.

The observations were started at 19:00 UT on 2014-09-07.
We detected the near-infrared afterglow in J, H and Ks bands.

Photometric results of our observations are shown below.
We used 2MASS 03123451+4635419, 03123283+4635411, and 03123016+4635375
as reference stars for photometry.
