Famous Japanese cross-dresser

Cross-dressing (the act of wearing clothes commonly associated with the opposite sex) is not something European people usually associate with Japanese culture. Imagine my surprise when I saw a huge guy in women’s clothing on Japanese television for the first time.

And it’s no exception, I often see this guy and other guys dressed like women on Japanese tv. Having mistaken a Japanese lady for a man in the past (see post about Japanese New Year’s Eve show), I first confirmed that this is in fact a guy dressed as a woman, before blogging about it. Can someone tell me his/ her name?
