Asteroid 4497, Taguchi, was discovered on January 4, 1989, by Kin Endate and Kazuro Watanabe at Kitami, Hokkaido, Japan. Taguchi has a period of 3 years, 185 days.
It was named for Japanese telescope mirror-polishing specialist Takeo Taguchi.
Astrologically, Taguchi seems to indicate "entrance to a fertile field (garden).".
The glyph for Taguchi is mine.
