(TokyoTech) report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We observed the field of the optical counterpart (V. Lipunov et al.
#26596) of GRB 191227A (The Fermi GBM team #26593, A. Melandri et al.
#26595) 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 19/12/27 08:08:42.73 UT. We did not detect
the optical counterpart in all three bands. We obtained the following
5-sigma limits for the magnitudes.

T0+[hour]    MID-UT T-EXP[sec]   5-sigma limits
~6.75        08:57:46.67 3360         g���>17.4, Rc>16.9, Ic>16.2
T0+ : Elapsed time after the burst
T-EXP: Total Exposure time
We used UCAC4 catalog for flux calibration.
The magnitudes are expressed in the AB system.
