Japan for the Uninvited

Japanese culture from a bemused foreign perspective

Hidetoshi Nakata

Along with David Beckham, Hidetoshi Nakata can take the credit for making soccer a serious challenger to baseball in Japan.

An impressive performance in the 1998 World Cup earned him a move to Italy’s Serie A, and he’s been club-hopping around Europe ever since.

He’s had a stormy relationship with the mass media, preferring to release news independently on his own website.

A gay icon and one of Japan’s most eligible bachelors, he has been linked with supermodel/actress Mila Jovovich and scandal-plagued actress Rie Miyazawa.
