Mr. Kajita invented a new type of curry bread which was square instead of the normal round-shaped bread in Japan. He sold this at his bakery and became known locally. 

Mr. Kajita passed away on 8 September 2014 in Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan, at the age of 110 years old.  

At the time of his death, he was the oldest living person in the prefecture and the third-oldest person in whole country.
