LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Haruko Mekaru at 112 years old. She was a Japanese supercentenarian born on 5 July 1910 in Nanjō City, Okinawa Prefecture. 

At some point in her life, she got married to a skilled master carpenter. Her family witnessed a fierce war during the Pacific War where their place of residence became a battlefield. Fortunately, they are living way off the road, so they sustained minimal damage from the conflict.

Mrs. Mekaru passed away on 21 November 2022 at her nursing home in Nanjō City, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan.
