Omedettoh, Tanaka-san!! What an amazing life! I would love to see a detailed breakdown of her daily diet, it would be worth copying to have great health. Except for the Coke, however, that sure looks strange next to traditional healthy Japanese food!

@ expat,

you're right, I expect to read the same story tomorrow when she makes 117 years and 262 days! A new record!

I hope she is lucid. Someone who has lived so long must have some great advice for younger generations.

Japanese don’t die, not an option. If the Coronavirus can’t get the, age has even less of a chance. Best deep wishes to her. ;)

Coke should pay her to be their poster lady! Coke - Because Life Isn't Short!

Tanaka, born as the seventh child of nine siblings on Jan 2, 1903,

In the same year, people like George Orwell and Lou Gehrig were born. And Ford Motor Company was founded. WOW.

And drinking lots of coke

This lass has lived through two world wars, several recessions, famines, a pandemic that killed 50 million before she was 20 and fighting with 8 brothers & sisters. And these days people moan about having to wear a mask when popping down to the shops.
