World’s Oldest Man

19 Apr

Meet 木村次郎右衛門 (Jiroemon Kimura).

114 years old today!

Today’s his birthday. His 114th birthday!
He was born on 1897 April 19th and now he’s the World’s Oldest Living Man (and the sixth oldest person in the world).

He has 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren (his twelfth great-great-grandchild is due to be born soon).

With some of his great-great-grandchildren

When I become old, I hope I’m as 元気 (energetic, lively) as Mr. Kimura!
