List of Japanese supercentenarians

  (Redirected from Nabi Tajima)

Chiyono Hasegawa (1896–2011), a resident of Saga, was one of hundreds of Japanese women to have lived past 110 years. She is pictured here in September 2010. She was the oldest person in Japan and second oldest in the world, dying at 115 years, 12 days.

Japanese supercentenarians are citizens, residents or emigrants from Japan who have attained or surpassed 110 years of age. As of January 2015, the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) had validated the longevity claims of 264 Japanese supercentenarians, most of them women.[1] The oldest person in Japan, and also in the world, currently alive is Kane Tanaka, born 2 January 1903, age 116 years, 47 days.[2][2] The oldest Japanese person on record was Nabi Tajima, who died on 21 April 2018 aged 117 years, 260 days.[3] Japan was also home to the world's oldest man ever, Jiroemon Kimura, who lived 116 years and 54 days.[4]

BiographiesEdit

Denzo IshizakiEdit

Denzo Ishizaki (石崎 伝蔵, Ishizaki Denzō, 20 October 1886 – 29 April 1999) was for a short time Japan's oldest living person and the world's oldest living man, from February to April 1999, and when he died the oldest Japanese man ever until being surpassed by Yukichi Chuganji on 30 September 2001.[37] A former elementary school teacher and town assembly member, Ishizaki lived in Kansago, Ibaraki Prefecture, where he died of multiple organ failure on 29 April 1999 at the age of 112 years, 191 days.[38]

Mitoyo KawateEdit

Mitoyo Kawate (川手 ミトヨ, Kawate Mitoyo, 15 May 1889 – 13 November 2003) became the world's oldest living woman after the death of Mae Harrington on 29 December 2002, and the world's oldest living person after the death of Japanese man Yukichi Chuganji on 28 September 2003. On 31 October 2003, after Kamato Hongo's death, Kawate was recognized as the oldest living person in the world,[39][40] though in fact, Kawate became the oldest living person in the world on 28 September 2003, because Kamato Hongo's record was revoked in 2012.[41]

A resident of Hiroshima, she worked on a farm until injuring her hands at the age of 99. In 1945, two days after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, she entered Hiroshima city in order to look for acquaintances.[39][42] She was taken to a hospital shortly before her death aged 114 years, 182 days from pneumonia.[39][40] Her death left Ramona Trinidad Iglesias-Jordan of Puerto Rico the oldest documented person in the world,[41] though this was not recognized by Guinness World Records until 2004 (Charlotte Benkner of the U.S. had been given the title in the interim).[40]

Masazō NonakaEdit

Masazō Nonaka (野中 正造, Nonaka Masazō, 25 July 1905 – 20 January 2019) was, at the time of his death at age 113 years, 179 days, Japan's oldest living man since Masamitsu Yoshida's death on 29 October 2016[43] and the world's oldest living man since Spaniard Francisco Núñez Olivera's death on 30 January 2018.[a] Nonaka was the oldest person ever born in Hokkaido Prefecture and Hokkaido's second oldest person ever behind Hatsue Ono (however, she was not born in Hokkaido).

He had six brothers and one sister and married Hatsuno Nonaka in 1931. They had five children (of whom three were living as of January 2019).[44] He ran the family onsen (hot spring), which opened in 1905, and spent most of his time in a wheelchair, crediting his longevity to eating sweets and relaxing in the hot springs.[45][46]

Nonaka died of natural causes at 1:30am on 20 January 2019[44] at his home on the island of Hokkaido[47] and was succeeded as the oldest living man by German Gustav Gerneth and as Japan's oldest living man by Chitetsu Watanabe.
