Asano Atsuko, born in Adachi in Northern Tokyo, is a Japanese actress who debuted at the age of 15 after playing a minor role in the series "Eden No Umi".

She had a credited role for the movie Fumiko To Hatsu the next year where she appeared nude. She began acting in feature films and by 1983 had won a Best Supporting Actress Award from the Japan Academy Prize for Yokiroh. The 101st Proposal was a 1991 romantic serial, which was popular and may have heralded her peak fame. This side of the century, and since 2003, she began book reading and narrating Japanese folklore ('Kojiki' - oldest surviving chronicle in Japan) at various shrines and became an honorary professor at Tokyo's Kokugakuin University.

She married writer Uozumi Tsutomu in 1983 and gave birth to a son in 1984. The son, Ouzumi Yu, is an NHK announcer.
