Tomoki Morokuma (ARC/Chitech), Nozomu Tominaga, Ichi Tanaka, and Michitoshi Yoshida (NAOJ) report on behalf of Japanese Collaboration for Gravitational-Wave Electro-Magnetic Follow-up (J-GEM) collaboration: 

We conducted near-infrared imaging observations of galaxies in the localization region of the gravitational wave event LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA S240422ed (GCN 36236) using the Multi-Object InfraRed Camera and Spectrograph (MOIRCS; 3.9x6.9 arcmin field-of-view; Suzuki, R. et al. 2008, PASJ, 60, 1347; Ichikawa, T. et al. 2006, SPIE, 6269, 38) on the 8.2-m Subaru telescope. We started our observations at UT 2024-04-23 05:21, about 7.8 hours after the event. 

We observed 100 galaxies in total in Y and Ks bands with 15-32 sec exposures. The target galaxies are selected from the list of potential host galaxies for this event (Dalya, G. et al. 2019, GCN, 24171) around the central coordinate of the localization. The list of the galaxies we observed is shown in the table below. The data were reduced with the MCSRED (Tanaka, I. et al. 2011, PASJ, 63, S415) and detailed examination of the obtained data is now underway.
