Studies of the stellar distribution in the inner region of our Galaxy have been seriously hampered at optical wavelengths by strong interstellar extinction. The extinction decreases considerably at infrared wavelengths, allowing us to look deep into the Galaxy. Motivated by this, we have tried to observe the near infrared brightness distribution of the central region of the Galaxy (Okuda et al., 1977, Maihara et al., 1978, Oda et al., 1978). Similar observations have been carried out by Hayakawa et al., (1976), Ito et al., (1977), and Hofmann et al., (1977). These observations have provided valuable information on the distributions of stars and dust in the inner Galaxy (Hayakawa et al., 1977, Maihara et al., 1978, Oda et al., 1978).
