Mine Kondō (born 1 September 1910) has been the oldest person in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, since Shizu Narita’s death on March 2nd 2023. She is presumably celebrating her 113th birthday as I post this message

this report from yesterday (5th of September) lists the oldest person in Aichi Prefecture as an 112-year-old woman living in Toyota City (where Kondo lives). I would assume they had gotten the info for the oldest person a few days earlier, before she turned 113, and didn’t know she’d had her birthday since
In August 2023 aged 112, from her nursing home’s blog
They post around 25 times a month and each post has several photos, and given that I only had to scroll through half a month’s worth of posts to find another picture of her there are surely many more photos of her on here. Once she appears again in a new blog post that will be confirmation for sure that she reached her 113th birthday
