18903 Matsuura           Discovered 2000 July 10 by K. Watanabe at Sapporo.
The geographer and explorer Takeshirou Matsuura (1818-1888) traveled throughout the Ezo under the order of the Edo-shogunate. He showed understanding to and sympathy with the native Ainus. He renamed Ezo as Hokkaido and introduced names for many places on the island.
