K. Yanagisawa (OAO/NAO), H. Toda, and N. Kawai (Tokyo Tech) report on
behalf of the Mitsume Collaboration:

"The field of GRB050416 (Sakamoto et al.; GCN 3264) was observed by
the 3-color Mitsume 50cm Telescope at Okayama, Japan starting at 
13:27 (UT).  With the first 60 min exposure, we did not detect a
source brighter than V=18.0, R=19.6, and I=19.0 at the position of 
the afterglow reported by Cenko and Fox (GCN 3265)."
