117th birthday of Japan's Misao Okawa


According to Guinness World Records, 5 March is the 117th birthday of Japan's Misao Okawa, the world's oldest living person. Born in 1898 in Tenma district (present-day Kita 北区, one of the 24 wards of Osaka, Japan), Misao-san took the title of world’s oldest living person in June 2013 following the death of Jiroemon Kimura, Japan, who had passed away at the age of 116.


She now lives at Kurenai retirement home in Osaka's Higashi-Sumiyoshi Ward and perhaps the secret to her long life is eating sushi and eight hours of sleep a night.


Happy Birthday!
