14447 Hosakakanai           Discovered 1992 Nov. 2 by K. Endate and K. Watanabe at Kitami.
In 1910 Kanai Hosaka (1896-1937) showed his drawing of 1P/Halley to Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) with the words, "The comet was like a night train going along the Milky Way". This probably inspired Kenji's best-known story "Night on the Galactic Railroad."
