We observed the field of GRB 160131A (Pagani and Barthelmy, GCNC 18951)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the Murikabushi 1m telescope of Ishigakijima Astronomical

The observation started on 2016-01-31 14:06:17 UT (~5.8 h afterthe burst).
We detected the previously reported afterglow (Pagani and Barthelmy, GCNC 18951;
Yurkov et al., GCNC 18952; Guidorzi et al., GCNC 18953) in all the three bands.

Photometric results of the OT are listed below.
We used GSC2.3 catalog for flux calibration.
