I believe two days ago was Umeno Sumiyama’s (Koume Kodama’s twin sister) 110th birthday. Is there any confirmation that she is alive and celebrated her birthday?

7. Takeichi Uchikawa (内川武一), M, 109, 1913.11.23 (vive em Uji) (homem mais velho) (por 1 de setembro de 2023)

Does anyone have confirmation of Takeichi Uchikawa's birthday in the last 2 years? Is there a source to confirm it?

Ōita (大分県)
1. Miyoko Hiroyasu (広安美代子), F, 112, 1911.01.23 (lives in Nakatsu)(per 15 September 2023)
-. Ito Miyawaki (宮脇イト), F, 109, 1913.11.13 (lives in Saiki)
-. Not Available, F, 109, 1913/1914 (lives in Ōita City)
-. Not Available, M, 108, 1914/1915 (residence unknown) (oldest man) (per 1 September 2023)

Presumably, Umeno Sumiyama (oldest twin) would have to the anonymous woman, if not she is deceased already. Does anyone know if she lives in Oita city?

Umeno Sumiyama was not from Ōita City. However, not having the data/statistics of a particular city does not automatically mean someone is deceased. We simply don't know (yet).

Has it been reported who is now the oldest person in Osaka Prefecture? According to the list in this thread it could be Chiyo Yanagawa but could there be someone older that isn't known about?

@mrcatlord Ōsaka prefecture only reports once a year: during the September updates - so we'll have to be patient. But, considering the fact that the oldest person in most major cities in the prefecture is younger than Chiyo Yanagawa, there's definitely a likelihood she is, in fact, the oldest.

Akita prefecture now reports that 109-year-old Fumi Seino (清野フミ) of Ōdate, born on 2 February 1914, is the new oldest living person in Akita prefecture, as reported on 20 December 2023. This means that the woman reported as second-oldest living person in September 2023, a woman born in 1913, has entered limbo.

The report also confirms that 107-year-old Hidenosuke Fujieda (藤枝 秀之助) of Semboku, the oldest living man in the prefecture, born on 7 February 1916, was alive on 20 December 2023 as well.

Mrs Hanako Ishii (石井花子) of Kamogawa, Chiba, born on 7 May 1913, was visited by LongeviQuest on 9 January 2024.

Hanako Ishii and the Enduring Power of Parental Love

On 9 January 2024, LongeviQuest representatives traveled to Isumi, Chiba Prefecture near the Pacific Coast of Japan to visit Hanako Ishii, age 110. Hanako-san lives in a local rehabilitation hospital, where she receives dedicated care from a medical staff treats her family. Her actual family lives nearby and she is constantly visited by family members, which she greatly enjoys.

Hanako Ishii on 9 January 2024

Hanako-san has been completely blind for several years, but aside from that is remarkably free of serious ailments. Her hearing is nearly perfect. She has a healthy appetite, a consistent sleep schedule, appropriate muscle strength for her age, and her memory is excellent, especially of her childhood. LQ representatives had our temperature scanned and were required to sanitize our hands before entering the hospital. As a rehabilitation facility, the hospital is far less austere than an emergency facility, and it is clear the staff work hard to maximize the quality of their patients’ lives.

When Hanako-san was brought into the common room to meet with us, the first thing we noticed was her wide smile. According to her family and caregivers, Hanako-san is a very happy woman, and this was abundantly clear! She had a smile on her face during nearly our entire visit. According to the hospital staff, it is rare to see her without a smile. She gave us all warm greetings and seemed happy to meet new people.

Fortunately for us, Hanako-san shared some of the reasons why she is so happy. But first, she had only one minor complaint. “I’m fat!” she said to us, prompting laughter from her caregivers in the room. While some research has been conducted implying that elderly people may benefit from being slightly overweight, this was of no interest to Hanako-san. Even when expressing this concern, she was smiling, perhaps because she knew it would make her caregivers laugh.

Since her positive attitude was so apparent, we asked her right away what she enjoyed so much about life. She confirmed that she loves her present life with family and caregivers who treat her so well. It is clear this is a woman who is well-loved. Quickly, however, she shifted the focus to her memories. “Let me tell you about my mother,” she said, and for the rest of our visit, her mother was her favorite topic.

Hanako Ishii with LQ representatives and her dedicated caregiving team, whom she considers family

The warm smile still on her face, Hanako-san described memories of spending time with her mother as a young girl. She especially recalled the one-on-one times she had with her mother. She remembered her mother taking her shopping – both for groceries and for toys. She remembered going on long walks with her mother. At one point, she described a particular day in which her mother took her to get food and then to a park to have a “beautiful picnic.” She made a point of saying how her mother “never got angry.”

As Hanako-san was telling us these memories, those of us visiting from LQ all independently had the same thought: she was telling us about memories from over a century ago, as if they happened yesterday! Looking at her face, it was easy to see her smile as the same one that must have been on her face over 100 years ago as she experienced those memories for the first time. To those of us visiting, these memories seemed unambiguously happy to us, rather than the melancholy often associated with recalling memories of loved ones who have passed away. In other words, Hanako-san’s memories seemed to be totally sweet rather than bittersweet.

Whereas a smile may seem to be merely a reaction to someone’s mood, it can be a cause as well as an effect. Prior research has demonstrated that a smile can induce a chemical reaction in the brain, spurring the release of hormones including dopamine and serotonin which increase happiness and reduce stress. As Hanako-san shared these special memories with us, it is likely that she herself was made happier by recalling them. In this sense, her mother’s love remains an active feature of Hanako-san’s life, comforting her on a daily basis despite her mother having passed away some years ago.

These impacts are not fleeting; the effects of these positive memories are present even when they aren’t being actively recalled. Having so many positive memories – and recalling them regularly – has been shown to build long-term resilience in someone’s emotional wellbeing, leaving them better equipped to deal with the more difficult moments in life. Per a 2017 study, “savoring happy memories might be significant for one’s ability to cope with stress, potentially promoting better decision-making and wellbeing.” Therefore, it seems reasonable to conclude that Hanako-san’s mother’s love has empowered her throughout her entire life.

While her mother was Hanako-san’s favorite topic to discuss, she was not the only part of her life bringing her great happiness. She discussed her brother and her son, noting how neither of them ever got angry either. She expressed her love for her home and her daily life. She also admitted to enjoying eating, despite also mentioning again how she felt she was fat. It was clear that her caregiving team at the hospital treats her with the utmost respect, and Hanako-san appeared very comfortable. On this particular day, Hanako-san felt inspired to sing three songs, including a rendition of Kimigayo, the Japanese national anthem.

After an hour, it was time for those of us with LQ to return to Tokyo. Addressing the author of this article, who was visiting from the United States, Hanako-san said, “If you go back to America tonight, be careful, it will be dark outside when you return.” She then insisted on being taken to the elevator doors to bid us farewell, rather than returning to her room. It was difficult for all of us to willfully leave the presence of such a lovely person.

LongeviQuest researchers are often amazed by the ability of supercentenarians to persevere through tragedy. Virtually all supercentenarians have had experiences in their lives that are incredibly challenging, and their ability to cope healthily with stress is likely a major factor in their long lives. After this visit to Hanako Ishii, we are reminded that a person’s life does not have to be viewed through the lens of trauma. Hanako-san’s childhood started her life on the sweetest of terms, and it seems that for a century, there has been no factor in her life more important than love.

We deeply thank Hanako-san for allowing us to visit her and sharing her life story with us. We also thank her family as well as her caregiving team led by Dr. Tanaka.

LongeviQuest also visited Mrs Ai Shinohara (篠原愛) of Machida, Tōkyō "shortly after her 111th birthday." As Mrs Shinohara was born on 4 January 1913, the visit must have been after 4 January 2024.

She can speak English!
