On 7 January 2024, a LongeviQuest delegation traveled north from Tokyo to the rural Tochigi Prefecture to visit Mrs. Shitsui Hakoishi.

Mrs. Hakoishi was born on 10 November 1916, making her the world's oldest active barber at the age of 107. During the visit, she gave a haircut to LQ CEO, Ben Meyers.

Mrs. Hakoishi is doing astoundingly well for her age. I hope LQ can plan more visits this year

Huge congratulations to Mrs Hakoishi on this remarkable achievement and career.

😀 And I’m sure Ben will be looking very smart after his haircut from such an experienced barber.😀
