World's oldest man enjoys sweets, sumo wrestling and soaking in Japan's hot springs

He also enjoys eating candies, especially cakes.

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

The Guinness World Records title for the oldest man who ever lived is held by another Japan man, Jiroemon Kimura, who died in 2013 at the age of 116 years and 54 days.

Masazo Nonaka received a certificate confirming his Guinness World Records title today after the death of Spaniard Francisco Nunez Olivera, 113, the previous record holder. But his favorite pastime is to soak in the hot springs and relax.

He has seven brothers and one sister who live nearby in Ashoro, Hokkaido.

The greatest authenticated age for any human is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who died in 1997. This was reported on the website of the Guinness Book of records.

He reads a newspaper after breakfast every morning, and loves to watch sumo wrestling and samurai dramas on TV.

A man in Ashoro, Japan, is being honored with an award that's been a long time coming: Being recognized as the world's oldest living male. He likes to spend time with his family and their two cats called Kuro and Haru. He married Hatsuno in 1931 and have five children with her. Honaka has outlived his siblings and wife. 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.

The country boasts around 68,000 people aged 100 or older, the Japanese government said in 2017.

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.
