Masazō Nonaka (野中 正造, Nonaka Masazō, (1905-07-25)25 July 1905 – 20 January 2019) was a Japanese supercentenarian. He was the world's oldest living man after the death of 113-year-old Spaniard Francisco Núñez Olivera on 29 January 2018. Nonaka became the oldest living man in Japan upon the death of 112-year-old Masamitsu Yoshida in October 2016.[1]

On January 20, 2019, Nonaka died at the age of 113 years 179 days.[2]

Nonaka said the reason why he lived a long life was because he ate too many sweets and used hot springs.[3][4]
