Birthday celebrant at an Ogimi Village area nursing home in Okinawa, Japan. Most of the community has turned out to honor the birthdays of three residents. (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. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats).
