Mrs. Tatsumi was born in Yao City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan on 25 April 1907. At the age of 32, she got married. During her life, she worked in a family orchard (growing peaches, plums, and grapes) until her husband passed away when she was about 55 years old.

Mrs. Tatsumi became the oldest living person in Japan and Asia, following the passing of Mrs. Kane Tanaka on 19 April 2022. Following the passing of Lucile Randon of France on 17 February 2023, she became the second-oldest living person in the world, after María Branyas Morera.

The LongeviQuest team had the privilege of meeting Mrs. Tatsumi in April as she celebrated her remarkable 116th birthday. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Tatsumi during this difficult time.
