6197 Taracho           Discovered 1992 Jan. 10 by S. Inoda and T. Urata at Karasuyama.
Tara is a town in Saga prefecture. The preparation of dried seaweed is its main industry, and Tara mandarin oranges are famous. The Saga Astronomical Society's 0.60-m reflector at the Tara Observatory is familiar to many of the local residents. The name was suggested by Y. Yamada.
