LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Shōjirō Shirai at 110 years old. He was born on 29 October 1909 and had three children in Japan.

At the age of 107 years old, he was still capable of taking care of everything around him, even attending daycare once a week. He kept his memory sharp even though his hearing was deteriorating.

He was considered as the oldest living man from Shiga Prefecture at 106 years old after Masao Hasegawa died on 5 February 2016.

On 14 April 2020, he became the oldest living man in Japan after 110-year-old Issaku Tomoe of Aichi Prefecture passed. Almost four months later, Shirai passed away on 11 August 2020 in the district of Adogawacho Aoyagi in Takashima, Shiga Prefecture. LongeviQuest extends their congratulations to the family of Mr. Shirai on this posthumous recognition.
