Hot springs and cakes for 112-year-old

Guinness World Records has officially awarded Masazo Nonaka title of oldest man living at the incredible age of 112 years and 259 days, in special ceremony.

Born on 25 July 1905, Nonaka grew up in a large family and succeeded his parents running the inn. The first radio broadcast happened in 1906.

A 112-year-old man from Japan says eating candies and hot baths are his secret as he was officially recognised as the world's oldest living man.

"He needs a wheelchair but he is in good condition", said his granddaughter Yuko Nonaka.

"He loves eating any kinds of sweets-Japanese or western style", she told AFP. But his favorite pastime is soaking in the hot springs and relaxing.

Even though Nonaka's longevity is an incredible feat, there are several people alive today who are even older - but all of them are women.

The greatest authenticated age for any human is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who died in 1997.

Mr Masazo Nonaka with his Guinness World Records certificate naming him the world's oldest man yesterday. He reads newspapers every morning and watches sumo matches and operas on TV.

In 1931, he married Hatsuno and went on to have five children with her. He is also fond of spending time with his family.

Nonaka replaces Francisco Nuñez Olivera of Spain, who was 113 when he died in January.

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

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. Japan has around 68,000 people aged 100 or older in the country, the government said previous year.
