I really hate this convention on Wikipedia of listing Asian people's names in a format like "<given name> <family name> (<family name in native script> <given name in native script>)"

As in:

Yukio Mishima (O RIv Mishima Yukio?) is the pen name of Kimitake Hiraoka ( Hiraoka Kimitake?, January 14, 1925 – November 25, 1970)

Looking at some other pages it also seems to only happen with Japanese names. For others using the East Asian name order there's usually a notice at the top saying something like "This is a Chinese name; the family name is Xi (习)."
