Arase Nagahide (荒勢 永英?, 20 June 1949 – 11 August 2008), real name Arase Hideo (荒瀬 英生?) was a sumo wrestler from Ino, Agawa District, Kōchi Prefecture, Japan.

An amateur sumo champion at Nihon University, he made his professional debut in 1972, and reached the top makuuchi division the following year. His highest rank was sekiwake. He was a member of Hanakago stable and a stablemate of yokozuna Wajima, a fellow Nihon University graduate. He once wore a cream-coloured mawashi, or belt, in a tournament, the only wrestler so far to do so.[1]After his retirement in 1981 he was briefly an elder of the Japan Sumo Association under the name of Magaki but left in 1983, turning the name over to Wakanohana II, and became a television personality. He stood for election to the House of Councillors in 2001, but was unsuccessful. He suffered a stroke in 2006. He died of heart failure in 2008 at the age of 59.[2]
