We present a near-infrared (JHKs) photometric catalog, including 14811185 point sources for a 40 deg2 area of the Large Magellanic Cloud, 2769682 sources for an 11 deg2 area of the Small Magellanic Cloud, and 434145 sources for a 4 deg2 area of the Magellanic Bridge. The 10 σ limiting magnitudes are 18.8, 17.8, and 16.6 mag at J, H, and Ks, respectively. The photometric and astrometric accuracies for bright sources are 0.03-0.04 mag and 0.″1, respectively. Based on the catalog, we also present (1) spatial distributions, (2) luminosity functions, (3) color-color diagrams, and (4) color-magnitude diagrams for point sources toward the Magellanic Clouds.
