LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Emi Miura of Japan at age 112. She was born in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan on 24 April 1911. Miura is currently the oldest living person in Miyagi Prefecture. She is a wife and a mother to three children.

Emi Miura graduated from the music department of Miyagi Girls’ School (now Miyagi Gakuin Women’s University Musicians) in 1932. Before and after World War II, she taught music at Hirosaki Girls’ School (now Hirosaki Gakuin University) and various high schools in Hirosaki City. Miura’s love of choral music began when she was a student, and she continued to pursue it even after she retired from teaching. Her dedication to music and education continued well into her 90s, as she also attended English conversation classes.

By the time she was 110 years old, she was living in a nursing home in Sendai City and was able to eat without assistance. On September 17, 2021, Sendai City commemorated her longevity by presenting her with a memento. Her response was, “Am I really 110 years old already?” As of September 2023, she had three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

In September 2022, she was reported as the second-oldest living person in Miyagi Prefecture, behind Matsuyo Eda. Following Eda’s passing on 28 October, Miura became the oldest living resident in the Prefecture.
