In many Asian cultures, the surname is written first, with the given name (usually they have no middle names) written last.
I.e.: Takahashi Amaya, with Takahashi being Amaya's "last name".
Often the surname is written in All Caps (TAKAHASHI Amaya) or written in the Western way (either Amaya Takahashi or Amaya TAKAHASHI) to make things clearer for Westerners.
