Nabi Tajima was a Japanese supercentenarian who lived to age of 117 years and 260 days. She was the last remaining validated person born in 1900.
@930310 I had no clue. That’s not how she’s listed anyway. How would you compare this case to Nabi Tajima?
@josia9353 I have not seen the documentation for Nabi Tajima, so I can't say anything about her case.
In Tajima's case, her original koseki was destroyed. Hee parents' koseki gave contradictory birth years - her father's said 1900, her mother's said 1901. A court case was held, and the judge ruled that 1900 (what Tajima claimed) was her birth year. So she was either 116 or 117. I'm unsure if we'll ever know which is correct, unfortunately.
If she was born in 1901, she was never the world's oldest living person titleholder. But even if she was born in 1901, 116 years and 260 days is still an incredible age for human!.
Few days ago Mr. Young did a detailed explanation about Nabi Tajima's age. See here: https://the110club.com/undisputed-oldest-people-ever-t3-s240.html#p40149591
