Kinu Suzuki was born in Japan on 12 May 1910.
According to the Shizuoka Shimbun dated June 8, 2005, Shimada participated in a watercolor painting class sponsored by Shimada City when she was 94 years old. She subsequently held an exhibition of her artwork alongside other members. The report highlighted her creation of vibrant portraits depicting her great-grandchildren, as well as scenes of landscapes and fruits in Shimada City. These pieces garnered attention from those who came to view the exhibition.
In September 2018, the mayor of Shimada City visited the nursing home where she resided, extending congratulations on her longevity as the city’s oldest resident. Despite living in a wheelchair, she was still able to independently feed herself and consistently expressed gratitude to her caregivers. On that day, she sang her favorite song for the mayor, uplifting the spirits of the people gathered at her celebration venue.
Kinu Suzuki passed away in Shimada City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, on 26 April 2021, at the age of 110 years, 349 days.
