"The secret of good health is to move," says 88-year-old Hoei Tabaru, who keeps in shape by biking through his village on the island of Okinawa. Spearing octopus from the sea and picking vegetables in his garden help him stay fit too. Tabaru, who has never driven a car, hopes modern technology will not transform island life. "The world is too easy today," he says, "at least for an old man like me."
