BIOGRAPHY

Yuriko Tsurumaru was born in Japan on 14 July 1913. She lost her husband when she was 36, and raised their four children on her own while working as a teacher.

At the age of 106, she had six great-grandchildren. When asked about the secret of her longevity, she said: “live in peace and eat a lot.”

RECOGNITION

On 21 September 2019, the Mayor of Kobayashi visited her nursing home, bringing with him an arrangement of chrysanthemums cultivated by local growers. He would keep visiting her every September.

On 19 August 2023, following the death of Yone Kawabata, she became the oldest living person in Miyazaki Prefecture.
