118230 Sado           Discovered 1996 Nov. 30 by N. Sato at Chichibu.
Sado, an island in the Sea of Japan, appears even in Japan's oldest history book Kojiki, dating to the eighth century. The island is currently famous as the place where Noh drama (one of the "World's Intangible Cultural Treasures") took root in the lives of the people on the island.
