16624 Hoshizawa           Discovered 1993 Apr. 16 by K. Endate and K. Watanabe at Kitami.
Sachiko Hoshizawa (b. 1951) appears daily on a Japanese television program about cooking and has introduced more than 3800 dishes using the produce of Hokkaido. A great space enthusiast, she developed and in 2000 presented to the astronaut Kouichi Wakata a special soybean soup for space.
