At a nursing home near Ogimi Village, most of the community turns out to honor the birthdays of three residents, including Matsu Zakimi (left), turning 97, and Sumi Matsumoto (right), turning 88. (These are traditional Japanese birthdays, not the actual birth dates?88, for example is celebrated on the eighth day of the eighth month in the lunar calendar.) Musicians, dancers, and comedians perform as well-wishers cheerfully gorge on sushi, fruits, and desserts. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 195).
