112 year old Nonaka certified World oldest living man

112 year old Nonaka certified World oldest living man

Erika Ogawa, vice president for Japan, presented the certificate to Nonaka at the Guinness world record office.

The 105-year-old inn is now run by his granddaughter Yuko.

He now lives with his family, who own and manages a 105-year-old hot springs inn.

Yuko Nonaka, his granddaughter, said he put much of his longevity down to a soft spot for Japanese and Western candies.

His granddaughter Yuko Nonaka said: "He needs a wheelchair to move but he is in good condition".

According to his granddaughter Yuko, Nonaka enjoys soaking in a hot spring once a week and indulges in candies, especially cakes.

The former inn owner in the town of Ashoro now likes to spend time with his family and also reads newspapers, watches TV and indulges in candies, according to Guinness.

Nonaka lives with his family, which manages a hot springs inn.

Masazo Nonaka from Japan, who is an incredible 112 years and 259 days old, was awarded the title of world's oldest man on Tuesday April 10 by Guinness World Records. The honour of the oldest living human goes to another Japanese person - Nabi Tajima, who is 117 years old.

Mr Nonaka has seven brothers and one sister who live nearby in the town of Ashoro on Hokkaido.

This was reported on the website of the Guinness Book of records.

Guinness says Nonaka replaced Francisco Olivera of Spain, who died earlier this year at 113. Her grandfather loves cake in particular. He likes to spend time with his family and their two cats called Kuro and Haru. He married in 1931, going on to have five children. While Nonaka believes his longevity is due to his likings to candies and the springs, his daughter thinks it is because he lives life stressless way.

Japan has many supercentenarians due partially to a healthy diet, with 68,000 people who are at least a 100 years old.

Guinness World Records is now investigating title holders for the Oldest person living (female), as no one has taken this title since 117-year-old Violet Brown (Jamaica) passed away in July 2017.
