Chiyonosuke Azuma was a Japanese actor and dancer.
Born in Tokyo, Azuma attended the Tokyo University of the Arts, while studying Japanese dance under Bandō Mitsugorō VIII.
He appeared in more than forty films from 1954 to 1993. He joined the Toei studio in 1954 and became a star after his debut film, Yukinojo henge, was a hit. His films with Yorozuya Kinnosuke, such as the "Fuefuki Dōji" and "Beni Kujaku" series, were some of the more popular works during the golden age of jidaigeki in the 1950s.
After leaving Toei in 1965, Azuma concentrated on teaching dance while occasionally appearing in film and on stage and television
