New Validation: Ushi Makishi 牧志ウシ of Japan (1909-present)


LongeviQuest has validated the age claim for Ushi Makishi (born 1909), the oldest known living person in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan.


Mrs. Makishi has lived most of her life in Okinawa, having been born there in February 1909.  She and her husband had six children, with the first born in 1929.  She moved into a nursing home at the age of 96, and she still enjoys many pleasures of life.  Mrs. Makishi occasionally enjoys an Okinawan hand dance called kachāshī, and also loves a local Okinawan dish called jūshī.

Mrs. Makishi’s age was validated by LongeviQuest Japan in a collaborative research effort between Ritsuko Makishi, Japan’s MHLW, Yumi Yamamoto, and Yu Li.
