report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 141221A (E .Sonbas et al., GCN Circular #17206) with the
optical three color (g', Rc, and Ic) CCD cameras attached to the MITSuME 50 cm
telescope of Akeno Observatory, Yamanashi, Japan.

The observation started on 2014-12-21 17:20:13 UT (~9.1 h after the burst).
We did not find any new point source within the refined XRT error circle
(A.P. Beardmore., GCN Circular #17211) in all the three bands.

The measured magnitudes are listed below.
