The largest gathering of people with the same first and last name is 178 and was achieved by Hirokazu Tanaka (Japan) in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan on 29 October 2022.


In 1994, the founder of “The same name association of Hirokazu TANAKAs” was watching TV and was thrilled to hear his name called out at Professional Baseball League Draft. Of course, it was different Hirokazu Tanaka, and that made him realise there must be many other people sharing the same name. So, he started his search for other Hirokazu Tanaka, and met many over the years, which resulted in creating the association. This was their third attempt, and Hirokazu Tanaka, whose age ranged from 3 to 80 years old, from all over the Japan, and from Vietnam, gathered together to achieve the record.
