LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Fumi Fujihara at 110 years old. She was a Japanese supercentenarian known as the oldest living person in Shimane Prefecture at the time of her death. 

Fumi was born on 7 September 1910 in Japan. She got married at 20 years old and became a mother at some point. 

She enjoyed composing tanka which is a Japanese short poetry. In 2011, she hosted a weekly tanka class at age 101. Fumi also attended a monthly local tanka event organized by the Ishikawa Tanka Society. She eventually became the leader of this society for her extensive experience and skills on the subject.

Before reaching 108 years old, she moved into a nursing home in Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture. It was reported that she has a healthy appetite even at the age of 110 while staying at the elderly home. 

Fumi passed away on 21 June 2021 at the same elderly home in Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.
