Space News appears to have picked up these observation reports:

"Amateur satellite observers, observing Hitomi from the ground, reported
on a mailing list late March 27 seeing flashes from the satellite with a
period of 5 to 10 seconds. Those flashes suggest that the spacecraft,
which is normally three-axis stabilized, is spinning."
