Tomoji Tanabe, a former Japanese city land surveyor, has been deemed the world’s oldest man. Tanabe is 111 years old.
This past Monday he was honored by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Tanabe said he is eager to keep living. He said he stays away from alcohol and smoking.
Although Tanabe is the world’s oldest man, he isn’t the world’s oldest person. That honor goes to a Japanese woman who is 114.
