Symphonic Poem Adieu Galaxy Express 999 and Dragon Quest Suite booklets gives the reading of this contrabass player as Naofumi Nishida. However, both booklets have weird romanizations (Kazumasa Soken, Minoru Souma, Nobuyoshi Maeda, Masaichi Ishibashi, Manabu Umeda and so on). Even worse, this NHK website that we used before for many name romanizations gives the reading as Masafumi Nishida.

The definitive source is this interview in which he is mentioned by a NHK Symphony fellow cello player.

今回の磯子コンサートにも出演した山口裕之君は、当時はまだコンサート・マスターじゃなかったんだけど、ビ オラも菅沼準二、コントラバスは西田直文(にしだ・なおふみ)、そういった錚々(そうそう)たる人たちを集 めて、N響の本当に主流のメンバーによる磯子コンサートが始まりました。
