Happy Birthday to Oldest Living Person as she Celebrates 116

The world’s oldest living person had a lot to celebrate on her 116th birthday Wednesday. Not only is she older than everyone on Earth, she is still able to celebrate in style.

Misao Okawa, of Japan, has lived in three different centuries. The world’s oldest living person celebrated her big day with the staff at Kurenai retirement home, where she resides.

How does one achieve such a long life? Okawa shares some of her wisdom telling the Daily Telegraph,” Eat and sleep and you will live a long life. You have to learn to relax.”

Tomohito Okada, who is the head of the Kurenai retirement home, says Okawa eats three large meals a day and also gets at least eight hours of sleep a night, according to the Telegraph.

“Her favorite meal is sushi, particularly mackerel on vinegar-steamed rice, and she has it at least once every month,” he said.

This past June, Okama was given the title of the world’s oldest living person after 116-year-old Jiroemon Kimura, who also hails from Japan, died.

To date, the oldest person known to have ever lived was Jeanne Calment of France. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, she died at age 122.

Okawa was born in 1898 in Tenma, Osaka. In 1919, she married her husband and together had three children. When her husband died in June 1931, Okawa moved back to Osaka. Today despite being of old age, she remains there in good health, consistently surrounded by her children, four grandchildren and six great grand children.

Okawa doesn’t only just hold the title of the oldest living person in the world. She also holds the rare title of being a supercentenarian, which is a person who is at least 110 years old. Here’s to many more years of happiness and good health for Okawa.
