A Japanese man who was certified as the oldest living man by the Guinness World Records in August 2014, turned 112 on Thursday.

Sakari Momoi, a resident of Saitama city, is still in good health, Xinhua news agency reported. He now lives at a healthcare institution in Tokyo and celebrated his birthday with his friends and family.

Momoi was born Feb 5, 1903, in Fukushima prefecture. He was an agricultural chemistry teacher and principal of prefectural government-run high schools in Fukushima and Saitama.
