9106 Yatagarasu           Discovered 1997 Jan. 3 by T. Kobayashi at Oizumi.
In Japanese mythology, Yatagarasu is the holy crow with three legs. It guided Jinmu, the so-called first emperor, and his troops from Kumano to Nara. The Chinese counterpart of the crow with three legs is said to live in the sun, and it is suspected that the crow is a naked-eye sunspot.
