Japanese naming Conventions

In Japanese, the surname will always appear before the given (commonly referred to as first name in the West) name. Thus, a person with surname Yamamoto and given name Fumio is referred to as Yamamoto Fumio. In the common naming order of Western European countries, this would be "Fumio Yamamoto". Japanese names are usually written in kanji lettering. It is also worth noting that it is rare for more than one given name to be used.
