LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Miho Kumagai of Japan at age 111. She was born in Japan on 20 October 1912. In old age, Kumagai eventually transitioned to a specialized nursing home for the elderly. She is considered the oldest living person in Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture.

In September 2019, she celebrated her 106th birthday at the nursing home, where she was visited by city officials who presented her with a congratulatory letter on behalf of the mayor in honor of Respect for the Aged Day. Kumagai graciously expressed her appreciation to the visitors, remarking, “You didn’t have to do all this for me.” Even at the age of 106, she maintained a diligent approach to her health, occasionally using a walker for mobility training when her condition allowed.

In September 2023, Kumagai marked her 111th birthday at her nursing home, where she once again received a visit from city officials. They presented her with congratulatory gifts and a letter from the mayor in observance of Respect for the Aged Day. When inquired about the secret to her longevity, she humbly responded, “Because everyone is so good to me.”
