He's 112 and he likes sweets. And he avoids stress by letting you know what he does and doesn't like.
I'm liking this formula!
He likes strawberry sponge cake, specifically. Hey, another great reason to get strawberry shortcake at the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival this weekend!
By the way, for the record, women live longer than men. The world's oldest living woman is 117.
New record: Oldest person living (male). Congratulations to Japan’s Masazo Nonaka who we've announced today as our new record holder at the incredible age of 112 years and 259 days! 🎉 Erika Ogawa, VP Japan for Guinness World Records, visited Masazo-san on the island of Hokkaido, to present him with his certificate (and a celebratory cake). These days Masazo spends his well-earned stress-free retirement watching sumo wrestling on TV, reading newspapers, spending time with his family and indulging in sweets and cakes. He owns two cats called Kuro and Haru. "We are very pleased to announce that we have a new record holder for the oldest living man," said Craig Glenday, our Editor-in-Chief. "Mr Nonaka’s achievement is remarkable – he can teach us all an important lesson about the value of life and how to stretch the limits of human longevity." ______________________________________________________ #oldest #age #japan #guinnessworldrecords #officiallyamazing #hokkaido #old #celebration #centenarian
