Hitoshi Ashinano is a Japanese manga artist. He is most noted for Yokohama Kaidashi Kiko, 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 doujinshi under the name "suke". Prior to his debut, Ashinano worked as an assistant to manga artist Kousuke 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.

If they licensed YKK in the U.S., I'd buy all 14 volumes in a heartbeat. This man's a genius.. really wish I could have his work on my shelf.

Couldn't agree more with @stand

The new art style isn't that good.
