BIOGRAPHY

Tamai was born in Shiga prefecture on 9 March 1902. She married and had two daughters.

In 2007, aged 105, Tamai moved into Hontamon Care Home, a residential facility for the elderly. At the time of her 111th birthday, she had three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Tamai died on 14 February 2015 at the age of 112 years, 342 days. She was the third-oldest person ever to die in Hyōgo, after Terue Ashida and Yoshino Ide.

RECOGNITION

In September 2012, the mayor of Kobe City visited Tamai to celebrate her longevity. On 19 March 2013, her age was validated by the GRG, having been verified by Anson Davis and Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW).

Tamai became the oldest resident of Hyōgo upon the death of 111-year-old Yoshi Kitamura on 29 May 2013. After her death, Yuriko Nishimura, also aged 111, became Hyōgo’s oldest living person.
