A group of 178 persons with the same first and last name gathered in Tokyo, Japan to achieve a Guinness World Record title.
People with the name of Hirokazu Tanaka ages between 3 and 80 gathered together in the same location within five minutes in a bid to break the record for "largest gathering of people with the same name".
According to local reports, the Tanaka Hirokazu association has surpassed the world record set by 164 people named Martha Stewart in 2005.
Hirokazu Tanaka, a 53-year-old representative of the association, shared that this was their third attempt. They failed twice in 2011 and 2017 when 71 and 87 Hirokazu Tanakas showed up to the event, respectively.
"Without creating anything or producing any kind of result as such, we have, just by being here, been able to become number one in the world at something," Tanaka said. (KBAPI)
