Hitoshi Ashinano (芦奈野ひとし Ashinano Hitoshi?, born April 25, 1963) is a Japanese manga artist. He is most noted for Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō, for which he won Afternoon magazine's Four Seasons Award for debut works and the 2007 Seiun Award for Best Science Fiction Manga. Another notable work is PositioN. He has also been known to create dōjinshi under the name "suke". Prior to his debut, Ashinano worked as an assistant to manga artist Kōsuke Fujishima.
His work also usually has a rather laid-back, nostalgic feel with undertones of mystery; there are frequent stretches with little or no dialogue. Many of his works are also notable for their strong, independent female protagonists.
