Meet The World’s Oldest Man
You may argue that you have a much older person in your village, but it is this man from Japan that the World Guinness Records has recognized as the oldest human male alive.
Masazo Nonaka is 112 years old. He was born on July 25, 1905. He took the title of the World’s Oldest Man on Tuesday after the previous holder, Francisco Nunez Olivera of Spain died this year at the age of 113.
A farmer and lumberjack in his youth, Nonaka later ran a hot spring inn in his hometown of Ashoro, on Hokkaido island, 900 km (560 miles) north of Tokyo, and raised two sons and three daughters.
Nonaka enjoys dipping in a spa and is fond of sweets, especially a strawberry sponge cake. He was joined at an award ceremony on Tuesday by relatives and officials.
The Guinness World Records title for the oldest man that ever lived is also held by another Japanese man, Jiroemon Kimura, who died in 2013 at the age of 116 years and 54 days.
The greatest authenticated age for any human is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who died in 1997.
