Eat black eggs at Owakudani, live longer

At Owakudani there are some shops which offer some black foods, like black soft ice cream and black boiled eggs. The black eggs have a long tradition and are the best sellers in black foods. It’s said that if you eat one black egg, your life expectancy will be 7 years longer. They are only sold in packages of 5 eggs. If you eat all of the 5 eggs, maybe you can live 35 years longer. If you don’t want to live that much longer, maybe you should share them with someone else.
