(ASRI 2024) Journey to promote Records in Asia - P04 - Japan: New World Record Set for Largest Gathering of People with the Same Name

20-01-2024

(Worldkings.org) TOKYO, November 1, 2022 - A group of people with the same name has broken a world record in Japan.

A total of 178 different individuals, all named Hirokazu Tanaka, met in Tokyo on Saturday. Some traveled from as far as Hanoi, Vietnam, and both a child and an 80-year-old also attended.

Hirokazu Tanakas set world record for meeting of people with same name

This record had not been broken since it was set in 2005 by 164 people named Martha Stewart. The group had been trying to break this record for a while and had two failed attempts before this successful one.

This event was not just a fun gathering of people with the same name, but also a memorable milestone, proving that even with the same name, each person carries a unique story and a separate life.
