Oldest Person In The World Turns 117

Last Sunday, at a nursing home in Fukuoka, the oldest person in the world, Kane Tanaka, celebrated her 117th birthday.

Since turning 100, Tanaka has dreamt of holding the record for the world’s oldest person. Now, she is holding that record.

Tanaka remains the oldest person in the world—a title she formally claimed last year, when Guinness World Records confirmed her supercentenarian status.

Know more about her life over at Smithsonian.
