report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 150323C (Amaral-Rogers et al. GCN Circular #17621) 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 2015-03-23 17:06:46 UT (85 sec after the burst).
We detected the previously reported optical afterglow (Xu et al. GCN Circular #17625) in the Rc band.

The measured magnitudes are listed below.
