Named in memory of Kunisuke Kinoshita (1901-1931), an astronomer at the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory from 1924 to his death. At the observatory he worked with Oikawa and discovered 1927 EB and 1927 FC. However, after he was sent to Malaysia in 1929 to observe the total eclipse, he became ill and stopped most of his work in 1930. He also wrote excellent articles on modern astronomy in the Astronomical Herald, the monthly journal of the Astronomical Society of Japan, for which he served as editor after 1929.
