BIOGRAPHY

Kiyo Ōhashi was born in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan, on 21 December 1913. Drawing from her experience of overcoming a serious illness in elementary school, she shared the following life lesson with the Kyoto Shimbun newspaper at the age of 107: “People can find the same thing enjoyable or painful depending on their mindset. Think about everything optimistically. Otherwise, it would be a loss to suffer. If you think about things optimistically, things will move in a positive direction.” She attended Kyoto Prefectural Second Girls’ High School.

It was reported that she possessed adept hand skills and excelled at weaving checkered dolls. At the welfare center in Nagaokakyō City, Kyoto Prefecture, where she has been attending since the age of 90, she enjoys engaging in activities such as origami, practicing kanji, and coloring.

Since September 2019, the mayor of Nagaokakyō City has made an annual visit to congratulate her on being the city’s oldest resident and for her longevity.

RECOGNITION

In September 2023, she was reported as the eighth-oldest living person in Kyoto Prefecture.

Her age was verified by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW), as well as Yu Li and Marco Wikkerink, and validated by LongeviQuest on 21 March 2024.
