report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We performed optical imaging observation of the field of GRB 070220
(GCN 6114, GCN 6118) with 50cm MITSuME telescope at Okayama Astrophysical
Observatory from UT 9:57 to UT 12:11 on Feb. 20 2007.

We coadded 105 Ic band frames with a 1 minute exposure time. We made
flux calibration using USNO B1.0 catalg. The three sigma limiting magnitude
of our observation was 20.2 in Ic band. We could not find optical afterglow
candidate in the error circle reported in GCN 6118.
