Asano Tsunanaga (浅野 綱長, July 28, 1659 – April 1, 1708) was a Japanese daimyō of the Edo period, who ruled the Hiroshima Domain. He held the title of Aki no kami. His childhood name was Iwamatsu (岩松).

During the 47 rōnin incident, Tsunanaga sent a messenger to Akō, which was ruled by a branch family of the Hiroshima Asano, and recommended that Ōishi Kuranosuke peacefully surrender the castle to the shogunate's envoys.

His daughter married the court noble Ichijō Kaneka.
