report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 120422A (Troja et al., GCNC 13243)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the Murikabushi 1m telescope of Ishigakijima Astronomical

The observation started on 2012-04-22 13:03:25 UT (~5.9 h after the
burst). We could not detect the previously reported afterglow
(Cucchiara et al., GCNC 13245) in all the three bands.

Three sigma upper limits of the OT are listed below.  We used SDSS catalog
for flux calibration.
