Oh, the things he must have seen throughout his lifestyle. He would have experienced the full rise, fall, and resurrection of Japan. Hopefully someone recorded all of his experiences in a book somewhere!

I've read through numerous accounts of people who've lived well past 100 and the common theme is a positive attitude about life. Even indulging in a bit of sweets and alcohol up until their deaths. But their outlook and positivity surely had a lot to do with it. Just going by this guy's picture, he seems in high spirits.

If we all could live such happy lives!

Very interesting. Sadly my grandfather is 99 going on 100 and now he started to say just let me die. I think he has chronic pain in his knees and cannot hear or see well. In any case, I hope he makes it to his 100th birthday.

RIP. What an amazing life. They should make a movie about him, living through wars, occupation, economic "miracle", and so on. I hope I too can live to at least 113.

Long doesn't always mean better.

Many people now think that maybe Jeanne Calment was a fraud.
