report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 121211A (Mangano et al., GCNC 14057)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the MITSuME 50cm telescope of Okayama Astrophysical Observatory.

The observation started on 2012-12-11 16:29:09 UT (~2.7 h after the burst).
We detected the previously reported afterglow (Japelj et al., GCNC 14058)
in all the three bands.

Photometric results and three sigma upper limit of the OT are listed below.
We used SDSS catalog for flux calibration.
