Nijiro Tokuda (b. June 10, 1895–d. June 12, 2006) was the oldest man in Japan and, at his death, aged 111 years
2 days, was the sixth oldest verified living man in the world. He was believed to have become the "doyen" of Japan following the death of Kohachi Shigetaka almost one year before at age 110. Tokuda lived in the care house Sakura no Sono in Kagoshima. Although he had been using a walking aid since fracturing his foot about 10 years ago, he continued to be an avid photographer and shot pictures of a local summer festival using a camera he owned for more than 20 years.
