report on behalf of the KANATA GRB team:

 We perfomed optical imaging of the field of GRB070220 (GCN 6114) at 
9:59-10:20 UT 20 Feb. using TRISPEC attached to the KANATA 
1.5-m telescope at Higashi-Hiroshima Observatory, Japan.  
We obtained 10 Rc-band images with a 123-s exposure time.  
The images were calibrated with neighbor stars 
in the USNO A2.0 catalog  (r mag ).

We cannot significantly detect the optical afterglow 
at the position of the X-ray afterglow reported in GCN 6114 in our images. 
The limit magnitude is estimated to be 21.2 (3-sigma).
