report on behalf of J-GEM collaboration:


We observed ZTF19aarykkb and ZTF19aarzaod reported by the Zwicky Transient Facility 
(Kasliwal et al., GCN 24191) with the near-infrared (J, H, Ks) simultaneous imaging camera SIRIUS 
attached to 1.4 m telescope IRSF (InfraRed Survey Facility) in Sutherland observatory, South Africa.

The observation started on 2019-04-26 00:19:13 UT. The exposure times in J-, H-, Ks-bands are
~30min (ZTF19aarykkb) and ~40 min (ZTF19aarzaod), respectively. We performed aperture photometry 
and the magnitude are listed below. The photometric magnitudes may have an effect from the host 
galaxy and nearest stars.
