He's the "Olympic Ojisan", Naotoshi Yamada. He made himself famous cheering at the Olympics.  Here's his official site: http://www.olympic-ojisan.jp/).

 Does anyone know the story behind the gentleman who is a regular in about the fourth row of the Kokugikan dressed in a white jacket with red collar/lapels and wearing (or holding) a gold top hat?  He also brandishes a large fan. 

Seems to me he is either very well off or very well connected to enjoy such expensive digs on a daily basis.  He does seem to enjoy himself hugely, and I kind of enjoy watching him.
