Oldest man enjoys candies, soaking in Japan's hot springs

Masazo Nonaka, who was born on July 25 1905, regularly soaks in the springs at the 105-year-old inn run by his granddaughter. According to local welfare authorities the 112-year-old Nonaka has an insatiable appetite for candies, especially strawberry shortcake.

Guinness says Nonaka replaced Francisco Olivera of Spain, who died earlier this year at age 113, as the world's oldest man.

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

He also enjoys eating candies, especially cakes.

The man has always been in retirement and spends his time mostly watching TV, reading newspapers and enjoying his favorite candies and cakes. He was also presented with an award and a cake from the Mayor of the Ashoro town where he was born and lives now with his family.

Although he believes his longevity is because of soaking in hot springs and eating candies, his daughter does not think so.

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

Guinness World Records was now investigating possible contenders for the title of the oldest living person as no one has been recognized since Violet Brown of Jamaica died in July 2017, at the age of 117 years.

The oldest person of all time was Jeanne Louise Calment from France, who lived to 122 years and 264 days between 1875 and 1997.

But Nonaka can not claim the Guinness title for the oldest male ever just yet. Jiroemon Kimura was born on April 19, 1897, and died aged 116 years on June 12, 2013, four years older than Masazo.

Japanese woman, Nabi Tajima, 117, is about to be named the world's oldest person.
