Shigeru Inoda (伊野田 繁, Inoda Shigeru, 1955–2008) was a Japanese ophthalmologist, surgeon and amateur astronomer.[2]

He is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 17 asteroids at the Karasuyama Observatory (889) between 1986 and 1992,[1] all of which were co-discovered with Japanese astronomer Takeshi Urata, except for his lowest numbered discovery 3394 Banno.[3] The inner main-belt asteroid 5484 Inoda was named in his honor on 1 September 1993 (M.P.C. 22510).[4]
