R. Sato, Y. Yatsu, M. Suzuki, and N. Kawai (Tokyo Tech) report:

We have observed the afterglow (Peterson and Price GCN 1985, Torii GCN
1986) of GRB030229 (H2652, Vanderspek et al. GCN 1997) on the nights
of 2003 Apr 29, 30, and 31 at Tokyo Tech, Tokyo, Japan, using a 30 cm
SC telescope with unfiltered AP 6E CCD camera.  The observationl
started at 12:57 UT (80 min after the GRB trigger).

We have estimated the R magnitude using USNO 2.0 stars U1050_06349885
(R=13.2), B:U1050_06348771 (R=14.2), and C:U1050_06351075 (R=14.0).
The results are shown in the table below.  The dip and rebrightening
at t0+1.2d (Lipkin et al. GCN 2045) was detected in our data too.
