report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We searched for the field of GRB 180602A (Cenko et al., GCN Circular
#22752) 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 2018-06-02 11:12:09 UT (~3 hours after the
burst). We did not find any new point source within the enhanced XRT error
circle (Osborne et al., GCN Circular #22753) in all the three bands.
