I wonder why the display name is George Nakata?
His used screen name at the Office Osawa Agency is Jouji Nakata:
http://osawa-inc.co.jp/men/nakatajouji/

His romanization on his Facebook and Twitter is also Jouji Nakata:
https://www.facebook.com/nakata.jouji?ref=br_rs
https://twitter.com/joujinakata123

And on the reference link given here (English Wikipedia), it's now written Jouji Nakata too.

In short, I saw Jouji Nakata written on most of the sites where I went.
George Nakata is more an alternative name no?

I'm guessing the creator of this entry just copied the name from EN Wikipedia (bad source), which had it as George Nakata until 2009.

Feel free to fix it.

OK I'm going to change the display name.
But if I do that, I have to edit all the albums where he is credited, and there are many!
Should I let George Nakata as variation all the same? There's this website for example who put it:

It should only be kept if it appears on any albums/official works.

OK so I have to check all the albums. I'll do that a bit later.
