Asaki (あさき) (born June 30) is an artist hired by Konami Corporation to create music for their Bemani game series. Along with Kozo Nakamura, Asaki made his Bemani debut on the release of Guitar Freaks 7th Mix & DrumMania 6th Mix. His lyrics are mostly ballad based and sung in a scat singing style (indeed, many listeners have a hard time understanding his singing), while his music incorporated the style of Japanese Visual kei, classical Japanese, classical European, and jazz, with most of his music appearing in the Guitar Freaks/DrumMania series. He occasionally composes for the Pop'n Music series, and as of early 2007, he composed two songs for the Beatmania IIDX series. Compared to most other Bemani musicians, he's the most reclusive, and is quite unheard of in North America, especially among Bemani fans who do not play DrumMania often. This is due to the fact that most of his songs are featured on DrumMania and are very difficult, and thus not commonly heard by beginners. Very few pictures of Asaki are known to exist. Asaki composes his own music, writes his own lyrics, and plays the guitar and bass for his music.

He was the vocalist of a visual kei band called "Blanc Neige" (Snow White), which released 3 songs, namely "Thanatos", "Song for You" and "Snow White." The band was composed of Daisuke, Ryo and Asaki. After Blanc Neige, the band changed their name to "Le Chat Noir" (The Black Cat), but did not officially release anything.

Asaki likes curry and cats; often his avatar on different Bemani sites depicts him as a cat. His fondness of cats also appears in one of his characters in Pop'n Music - Onna no Ko (the character for Shizuku) will become a cat if she loses her challenge.

Asaki is the sound director of Guitar Freaks V5 & DrumMania V5 Rock to Infinity, making it his first time in that position.

His first album "Shinkyoku", was released in September 16, 2005.
