Japanese supercentenarians[edit]

Below is a list of Japanese supercentenarians, both living and dead. The lifespans of those listed as verified have been validated by the Gerontology Research Group. The lifespans of those listed as pending are backed by at least one document supporting the reported age, but not the three necessary for validation by the GRG. Those listed as age disputed have been verified by the GRG, but evidence has come to light that suggests that they may have been younger than the age given on this page.
