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.

Takeo Taguchi

Astrologically, Taguchi seems to indicate "entrance to a fertile field (garden).".

The glyph for Taguchi is mine.
