Japan is an Island nation in east Asia. It is an Asian country where many supercentenarians (but not as much as the USA) were born in. All Japanese people are oriental. For the third season of Ben and Toad's Contest, there will be a few people from Japan being contestants. Japan has a lot of verified living supercentenarians.


Japan made a joint bid with South Korea to host the 2002 FIFA World Cup; but Japan lost to eventual third-placed team Turkey in the round of 16. The men's team qualified for every World Cup since 1998 and the women's team won the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. The women's team again faced the US in the 2015 final, but the USA avenged their 2011 loss.

Kei Nishikori made Japanese men's tennis history by making the final of the 2014 US Open to face Marin Cilic. The final was considered to be "the match of underdogs".


On Ben and Toad's Contest, for the first season 1, only one contestant came to play the show, Jiroemon Kimura, at age 115. At the age of 115 years, 156 days at the time the show started, he was the oldest contestant to play, breaking Priscilla Presley's record of 67 years at the time of filming. For the April 20, 2013 show, the show will take place in Kyotango in Kyoto and the sign will say "Priscilla Presley lives there.". The most famous landmark in Japan is Mount Fuji. On Feburary 2, 2013, one week before Sou Osada died, Kimura won the season.

The world's oldest man ever hails from that country and has died.

There has been more than 250 verified supercentenarians from Japan, but less than 500.

Kimura is now 116. Since Kyotango is home to him and most of Ben and Toad's Contest's contestants, it's open. He plays Ben and Toad's Contest, at age 115, he's the oldest contestant to play the show and he is friends with Melissa Joan Hart and he was fired from Ben and Toad's Contest in week 20, the finale. They came to Ben and Toad's Contest very often. Fired from Island Contest in day 6. Despite going home early from Island Contest, Vera Lynn's face at the elimination is sad.
