Yoshiko Takioto (Japanese: 瀧音芳子) was a Japanese supercentenarian whose age has been validated by LongeviQuest.


Yoshiko Takioto was born in Japan on 25 March 1913.

At the age of 39, she lost her husband, Rinsaku. In 1954, she opened her first sushi restaurant in Nanao. For years, every morning she would carry a basket on her back to the fish market to stock up on fish. Her restaurant was later managed by her grandson.

At the age of 100, she said: “I thought that I couldn’t live without working three times as much as a normal person, so I worked hard with spare time to sleep.” At the time, her hobby was karaoke. At the age of 105, she was attending a day service twice weekly, and at the age of 110 she was attending a day service center with her son.
