Yuzurihara (Yuzuri Hara) is the name of a village in Japan. The village of Yuzurihara (Yuzuri Hara) came to the attention of the world in the year 2000 when ABC Television Network made a documentary report which highlighted the fact that many of the villagers who lived in Yuzurihara or Yuzuri Hara [1] had very young skin, healthy hair and were extremely supple. They also lived longer and did not appear to exhibit the signs of aging which commonly occurs at this age. Many of the people were in their 80s and 90s but looked years younger. The village of Yazurihara or Yazuri Hara become known as "The Village of Long Life" after the report was televised on American TV.

The World Health Organization conducted research of 990 villages and towns in Japan. Of those villages and town surveyed by The World Health Organization, it was found that there were 10 times more people living beyond the age of 85 in Yuzurihara, than there were in North America.[2]
