report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We detected the optical afterglow candidate of GRB 070125
reported by by Cenko and Fox (GCN 6028) with the 50cm MITSuME
Telescope at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory on January 26
UT. Photometric calibration was done using USNO-B1.0 catalog
magnitudes of eight stars around the target. The results are
following.
