LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of Kikue Taira at age 113. She is a Japanese supercentenarian reported to be the fourth-oldest living person in Okinawa Prefecture when she was 112 last year.

Kikue Taira was born on 26 April 1910 in Yomitan Village, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. She was the third daughter out of four wherein the eldest and youngest lived a short life. However, her second-eldest sister, Kame Ganeko, lived a long life reaching 114 years and 191 days.
