8163 Ishizaki           Discovered 1990 Oct. 27 by T. Seki at Geisei.
Named in honor of Masako Ishizaki (b. 1902), long-time Japanese amateur astronomer and pioneer in the study of meteoric dust. In particular, she studied dust collected for her at the Showa Base in Antarctica, where terrestrial contamination is low. Name proposed by the discoverer following a suggestion by S. Morikubo, I. Hasegawa and T. Sato.
