Junko shared a photo on Twitter of two commemorative Coca-Cola bottles, given to Tanaka for his birthday, with labels personalized with his name and age.
“I may be biased because I relate to her but I think it’s amazing — I wanted to share it with the world and for people to feel inspired and feel her joy,” Junko said.
Born in 1903, Tanaka married a rice shop owner at the age of 19 and worked in the family shop until the age of 103.
Tanaka’s grandson, Eiji Tanaka, told CNN last year, “I can’t remember she was talking much about the past… She’s very forward-thinking — she really likes to live in the present.”
In September 2021, Spain’s Saturnino de la Fuente García became the oldest person at the age of 112. He was born in 1909, and endured the Spanish Civil War while working as a shoemaker.
Tanaka received congratulatory messages from Twitter users on his birthday.
