Sup Travellers?! Have you ever been to Japan? Well from my analysis of the country it seems as though people there have the tendency to live very long. Both the world's oldest man and the world's oldest woman are Japanese. Japan's Jiroemon Kimura, who had been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living person, the oldest living man and the "oldest man ever", died Wednesday of natural causes. He was 116.


Kimura, of Kyotango, Japan, was born April 19, 1897. According to Guinness, Kimura was the first man in history to have lived to 116 years old. Kimura became the oldest man ever on Dec. 28, 2012, at the age of 115 years, 253 days, breaking the record set by Christian Mortensen, a Danish immigrant to the United States, whose life spanned from 1882-1998.

The title of oldest living person is now another Japanese, Misao Okawa, of Osaka. She is also the world's oldest living woman. This is definitely really impressive if you ask me. It was very unfortunate that the world's oldest man died, it's still a very impressive age. 116 is a remarkable age. I don't know if I want to live that long though, but whatever happens it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
