VOA慢速英语:爱笑的日本男人成最年长老人

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-02-14   English BBS   Favorite  

Chitetsu Watanabe was born in Niigata in northern Japan in 1907. He received a certificate recognizing him as the world's oldest man Wednesday at a healthcare center in the city. It confirmed he was 112 years and 344 days old.

The former record holder was Masazo Nonaka, another Japanese, who died last month. The oldest living woman, Kane Tanaka, is also Japanese. She is 117 years old.

Until about 10 years ago, Watanabe did bonsai, the Japanese traditional art of growing small sculpted trees. His work appeared at shows.

These days, he loves eating desserts, such as sweet custards, Guinness said.

Watanabe attended an agricultural school, and completed a study program there. He then moved to Taiwan to work at Dai-Nippon Meiji Sugar.

He lived in Taiwan for 18 years. He and his wife Mitsue had five children, Guinness also reported.

After the end of World War II, Watanabe returned to Niigata, Japan. He worked for the local government until retirement. He also grew fruit and vegetables on the family farm.

Asked about the secret to his long life, Watanabe says: Don't get angry and keep smiling.
