The Japanese man passed away at his home in Ashoro.
Nonaka, who was born in 1905, had been living over the past years together with his grandchildren at the foot of Mount Oakan in the north of Hokkaido. His descendants run a small hotel at the Nonaka Onsen hot springs in this area.
However, Nonaka was placed only 30th in the ranking of the world’s oldest people.
