The oldest person in the world celebrates her 119th birthday in a nursing home in Japan

Ken Tanaka, the world’s oldest person, celebrated her 119th birthday in Japan, and said she plans to extend her record for another year.

According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Tanaka, who loves to eat chocolate and soft drinks, has reached a new milestone and celebrated it with the workers at her nursing home in southwest Japan, according to local reports.

The Guinness Book of Records recognized Tanaka as the oldest person in the world in March 2019, when she was 116 years old, and set an unprecedented record in Japan when she reached the age of 117 years and 261 days in September 2020.

Tanaka was born in 1903, in the same year that the Wright brothers began their first attempts to fly, and Tanaka besieged five Japanese emperors, and hopes to reach 120 years, according to her family members.

Born six months before the famous British novelist George Orwell, Tanaka is one of a large and growing number of Japanese over a century old.

In estimates released last September, the Japanese Ministry of Health said about 86,510 people are aged 100 or older, an increase of 6,060 from the previous year. Women make up the vast majority of the centenarians, while the number of men is only about 10,000, according to figures from the Japanese Ministry of Health.
