Named in honor of Ichiro Tasaka (b. 1929), Japanese farmer, Mars observer and astronomical optician. He has made hundreds of precision telescope mirrors currently being used both by observatories and amateur astronomers. He operates a tourist house that has an observatory. Its main telescope is a 0.73-m equatorial reflector, both the optical and mechanical parts of which were made by Tasaka himself. Name proposed by the discoverers following a suggestion by T. Sato and A. Fujii.
