Japanese becomes world's oldest living man

Masazo Nonaka receives a certificate as the world’s oldest living man

A 112-year-old person from Japan has been recognised as the world's oldest living man.

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

"I am anxious because all the residents are my acquaintances", said a 76-year-old man living some 2 kilometers from the landslide site, adding he felt that the ground in the area had loosened after major earthquakes struck Kumamoto and Oita prefectures in 2016.

Nonaka was born on July 25, 1905, just months before Albert Einstein published his famous special theory of relativity and more than a year before the Wright Brothers' first demonstration of powered flight. In 1931, the year he married and became the father of five children. He took the title after the death of Spaniard Francisco Olivera, who was 113.

His family members say Nonaka still moves about by himself in a wheelchair. "He loves eating any kinds of candies ― Japanese or Western style", she said, according to The Telegraph. He regularly soaks in the springs and also enjoys having candies, especially cakes. Erika Ogawa, VP Japan for Guinness World Records presented the award to Nonaka at his home in Hokkaido on Tuesday.

He also enjoys eating candies, especially cakes.

Nonaka is said to be extremely fond of his pets and added if he does not like his dinner he would often give it to his pets, but tries to hide it from his family. She claimed it was because he lives his life in a way that does not bring him stress. The country has been home to several oldest title holders, including Jiroemon Kimura, who died in June 2013 at the age of 116.
