1993 SH2. Discovered 1993 Sept. 19 by K. Endate and K. Watanabe at Kitami. Named in honor of Atsushi Miyamoto (1961), senior researcher at Saji {see planet (8738)} Observatory and a board member of the Tottori Society of Astronomy. In June 1997 he initiated one of Saji Observatory's first research projects, using its 1.03-m telescope to make follow-up observations of the faint transneptunian objects. This resulted in the first such observation in Japan, when 1997 CS29 was detected on 1997 Dec. 25. (M 35490)

Name proposed by the discoverers following a suggestion by Y. Yamada.
