They also eat less calories than normal Japanese people, are active daily, have enjoyable lifestyle, happy mindsets, don't get stressed out all day, enjoy strong social community ties/sense of purpose, lower exposure to toxins (in food, medications, environmental)..etc..etc.

I'm sure they also eat fresh fish....being on an island and all.
