Hane Naoki (born 1976) became professional in 1991. Son of Hane Yasumasa.

He is one of the strongest player of the young generation. In 2001 he played in the Kisei, Meijin and Honinbo Leagues simultaneously. From 2001-2003, he won the Tengen title. In 2002 he also won the 43rd Okan title and came second in the 49th NHK Cup.
