Yes, his 112th birthday is confirmed already.

There is a Mikizo Ueda's independent thread in the Japanese longevity forum (one of only 10 individual thread of that forum.)

If he were alive today, he would have been 113 years old. Really sad that he is no longer alive. 😔 He was one of my favorite supercentenarian.
 
LongeviQuest (LQ) validated him on 26 April 2023  https://longeviquest.com/supercentenarians/mikizo-ueda/ , with another 2 male supercentenarian (André Ludwig & Tripolino Giannini, already validated by ESO however.)

As of yesterday, March 8, 2024, Mr. Ueda was replaced by Gisaburo Sonobe and was no longer included in the list of the top 10 longest-lived Japanese men in history.

Mr. Ueda is an amazing person, and he is the person I personally strongly wanted to be the oldest living man in the world. Once again, I pray for his soul.
