report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We searched for the optical counterpart of GRB 150314A (L. M. Z. Hagen et al., GCN Circular #17573) 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 at 2015-03-14 05:21:32 UT (~5.4 h after the burst).
We could not find any new point source within the refined XRT-UVOT alignment error circle 
(A.P. Beardmore et al., GCN Circular #17575) in all the three bands.

The obtained upper-limits are listed below.

We used GSC2.3 catalog for flux calibration.
