Getting Old Doesn't Have to Suck

Ever Since This 90-Year-Old Japanese Grandma Discovered Photography She Can’t Stop Taking Hilarious Self-Portraits (New Pics)


This lovely Japanese lady could even teach millenials a trick or two on how to capture the life's most joyful moments and turn them into magic. 

Last year, Kimiko Nishimoto took the internet by storm with self-portraits casting herself as a dog, a frog or even a witch roaming the vicinity on her broomstick - almost like a Harry Potter character that accidentaly made their escape from the pages of the book. 

Her recent debut in the world of social media made her famous beyond the boundries of a Japanese province where she lived. In December, she was even honored in Tokyo, where many of her followers visited the gallery exhibiting her works.

Kimiko is, indeed, a tech-savvy lady who runs and manages her Instagram account herself, sharing pictures captured and manipulated in photo editing programs... also by herself.

Scroll down and see how Kimiko, at the age of 90,  turns her ordinary days into photos filled with light-hearted humor.

May L  I looked this up, the throwing peanut thing. Here is a summary off of Wikipedia: Setsubun. The custom of mamemaki first appeared in the Muromachi period. It is usually performed by the toshiotoko (年男) of the household (the male who was born on the corresponding animal year on the Chinese zodiac), or else the male head of the household. Roasted soybeans (called "fortune beans" (福豆 fuku mame)) are thrown either out the door or at a member of the family wearing an Oni (demon or ogre) mask, while the people say "Demons out! Luck in!" (鬼は外! 福は内! Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!) and slam the door. Peanuts (either raw or coated in a sweet, crunchy batter) are sometimes used in place of soybeans.
