report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We searched for the optical counterpart of GRB 161017A (E. Troja et al., GCN
Circular #20064) with the optical three color (g', Rc, and Ic) CCD cameras attached to the MITSuME 50 cm
telescope of Akeno Observatory, Yamanashi, Japan.

The observation started on 2016-10-17 17:52:42 UT (51 sec after the burst) and
we detected the optical counterpart in g', Rc and Ic band.
The measured magnitudes were listed as follows.

We obtained following results for the magnitudes.
