My offer - let's add his age before every posted photo.
Please correct me, if I'm wrong with suggested age.

110


112 or less



112 (11.09.2009)



113


113 (14.09.2010)


113 (January 2011)


114 (April 2011)





114 (May 2011)

114 (Sep 2011)

114 (Sep 2011)



115 (Apr 2012)




Living above 120 as hard as to run one kilometer in 1 munute. No one can do this...

...but Jeanne Calment was riding a horse. :)

Jiroemon looks that even on his 115th b-day was in amazing shape!What's his current condition?I 've heard that he's fortunately with us,but what's about his health?Hopefully he will become second oldest man ever in 6 days from now...

This has been discussed in one of the Top Ten section's topics! He has just been hospitalized to make some medical exams, in order to verify if everything's okay or not. Hopefully, everything was in order!

In this photo, Jiroemon looks like Yukichi Chuganji... That was my first thought!
Envejecer es como escalar una gran montaña; mientras se sube las fuerzas disminuyen, pero la mirada es más libre, la vista más amplia y serena.

Yup, he is very healthy for his age. he reminds me a little bit about a 104-year old that I met earlier this year.
Just keep on runin' down the road. Fight the evil and don't go home.
