In some ways it might be doubtful, but I would need to check.

Japanese have a long history of working with various foreign scripts and
authors due to the import of Buddhist texts from India, Tibet, Nepal, China,
Vietnam, Korea, and so on.

Looking at some published papers in various DSpace installations in Japan I
see that some authors use the 'Given name FAMILY NAME' convention for both
Japanese and non-Japanese for an English-language paper.

Looking at a Japanese-language paper from, say, the AMCoR repository I see
that Japanese-language papers are referenced in traditional Asian style for
names, in other words using kanji and writing family name first and then given
name, whereas English-language papers are referenced in Western style, even
for Asian authors.
