These are lists of Japanese supercentenarians (people from Japan who have attained the age of at least 110 years). The Gerontology Research Group (GRG), an organization that tracks supercentenarians and validates their ages, has verified age claims for over 300 such old people from Japan. The oldest Japanese person on record was Misao Okawa (1898-2015) who died at the age of 117 years 27 days.[1] As of 23 July 2016, there are 23 verified living supercentenarians in Japan, the oldest of whom is Nabi Tajima, born 4 August 1900 and aged 115 years, 354 days.[1]
