48495 Ryugado           Discovered 1993 Jan. 16 by T. Seki at Geisei.
Ryugado, in Kochi prefecture, is one of the Three Greatest Limestone Caves of Japan and has been designated a National Historic Site, as well as a National Natural Treasure. Earthenware from the Yayoi Period (300 B.C.-A.D. 300), evidence of cave dwelling, was uncovered in this 4-km-long cave.
