BIOGRAPHY

Tane Matsubara was born in Tochigi Prefecture, Japan, on 15 October 1909, as the eldest of ten children. At the age of 20, she got married and had eight children (five sons and three daughters). Following her marriage, she lived in Imakane in Hiyama Subprefecture. In 1936, she moved to Biratori, where she was selling tofu.

In her later life, she lived with her sons in Tomakomai and Hidaka, until she moved into the nursing home in Tomakomai in 2007. Even as a supercentenarian, she was able to read newspapers, and if there was a character she didn’t know, she would ask around and learn. As of 2022, she had 18 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and 5 great-great-grandchildren.

Matsubara passed away in Tomakomai, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan, on 16 January 2024, at the age of 114 years, 93 days.
