It is with great pleasure for LongeviQuest to share that Mrs. Yoshiko Naitō of Japan turns 112 years old. She is a Japanese supercentenarian known as the oldest living person in Yamanashi Prefecture.

She loves flowers, and that day she reached out and admired her flowers sent by LongeviQuest to celebrate this feat. She enjoyed spending time with her family on her birthday. According to her nursing home, at the age of 112, sweet jelly and fruit are her favorite foods and she happily eats them.

Yoshiko Naitō was born in Yamanashi City, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan, on 10 February 1912, as the second of four siblings. From her youth, she had numerous hobbies and interests. These included a passion for international travel, pilgrimages to temples across Japan, reading books, and tending to a vegetable garden, a practice she carried on until the age of 95 when she suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage

Her family attributed her longevity to a combination of factors, including her genetic predisposition for a long life, her commitment to physical activity, and her nutritious diet.

LongeviQuest sends our warmest greetings of celebration for Mrs. Yoshiko’s 112th birthday and wishes her the best.
