These are lists of Japanese supercentenarians (people from Japan who have attained the age of at least 110 years), according to the Gerontology Research Group. There have been over 250 verified supercentenarians from Japan, including limbo cases.[1] As of 2 August 2014, there are 27 verified living supercentenarians, 15 pending, and 2 unverified in Japan, the oldest of whom is Misao Okawa, aged 116 years, 150 days. Okawa also holds the title of the World's oldest living person. The oldest person ever from Japan was Tane Ikai, (January 18, 1879-July 12, 1995) who died in 1995, aged 116 years, 175 days.
