Chihayaakasaka (千早赤阪村 Chihayaakasaka-mura?) is a village located in Minamikawachi District, Osaka, Japan.

As of 2009, the village has an estimated population of 6,131 and a population density of 164 persons per km². The total area is 37.38 km².

This village is known for Chihayaasakusa Castle, where the Battle of Chihayaasakusa Castle occurred in the Medieval era, in the late Kamakura period. Local akuto Kusunoki Masashige won this battle and began his career to become one of the most important and reliable men of Emperor Go-Daigo. Today there is a museum for remembrance on this battle and Kusunokis.

On March 1, 2008 Chihayaakasaka requested a merge into the adjacent city of Kawachinagano, after talks of merging with the surrounding towns of Kanan and Taishi fell through.[1] These plans also fell through as of August 14, 2009.

In 1893, Akasaka, Kumatarō Kido and Yagorō Tani murdered 10 people except a murder of infant. They killed themselves after murders.
