In the world?

Then it would be Yoko Ono.

I went to Spain last year and walking around I was surprised at the frequency of pictures of Crayon Shin-chan's bum.

Iron Chef Masahiru Morimoto.

Junichiró Koizumi-san. A great politician, and his son is a fantastic actor.

Although most don't know his name I wouldn't be surprised if Beat Takeshi were the most recognizable. However, Yoko Ono, who is no longeer Japanese but a US citizen, will be mentioned first.

What am I talking about? Ken Watanabe, of course.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Masi Oka.

Issey Ogata, Beat Takeshi Kitana Kitano, Yoko Ono and Ryuichi Sakamoto spring to mind.

Ken Watanabe, Yoko Ono, or Kei Nishikori

Masi Oka, Ken Watanabe, Takeshi Kitano (for me at least), Hiroyuki Sanada has a recognisable face and Shinzo Kagawa because I'm a football fan.
