Oldest man enjoys sweets, samurai dramas and soaking in Japan's hot springs

Mentally Ill Man Allegedly Spent 20 Years Inside A Cage, Father Arrested

"He loves eating any kinds of candies - Japanese or western style", she told AFP.

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

The supercentenarian, whose family has run a hot springs inn for four generations, was certified Tuesday as the world's oldest living man, at age 112 years, 259 days.

But his favourite pastime is to soak in the hot springs and relax.

Born on 25 July 1905, months before Albert Einstein published his theory of special relativity, Mr Nonaka lives with his family who run a hot springs inn on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido.

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

The man has always been in retirement and spends his time mostly watching TV, reading newspapers and enjoying his favorite candies and cakes.

The honour of the oldest living human goes to another Japanese person - Nabi Tajima, who is 117 years old.

Masazo Nonaka, from Ashoro, Japan, is officially the oldest man alive.

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. 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, known for the longevity of its people, has been home to several oldest title holders, including Jiroemon Kimura, who died in June 2013 at the age of 116.

Local officials said the body had not yet been identified, but Japan's NHK television said the man was among six people who had been reported missing by a local resident.
