Takeshi Urata (浦田 武?, Urata Takeshi, 1947 – December 15, 2012)[2] was a Japanese astronomer. He was a prolific discoverer of asteroids, observing at Nihondaira Observatory.

In 1978 he became the first amateur to discover a minor planet (2090 Mizuho) in over fifty years, which he named it after it his daughter, Mizuho.[3] His pioneering feat led to an upsurge in such discoveries. In the ten years that followed, amateurs from Japan discovered 160 minor planets.[4][5] Urata shared his observation data with peer astronomers in Japan on a periodical called "Tenkai" (the Heavens),[6][7][8][9][10] as well as contributed to academic journals such as Advances in Space Research[11] and participated in poster presentation at astronomical conferences.[12]

Urata co-discovered the periodic comet 112P/Urata-Niijima in 1986. One of the most active amateur astronomers in Japan, he was also an editor of the Japanese Ephemerides of Minor Planets. The 1927-discovered asteroid 3722 Urata is named after him.[13]
