Tanaka died of old age at a hospital in southwestern Fukuoka city on April 19.
She got married a century ago, and had four children. She spent her later years in a Japanese care home, where she enjoyed board games and chocolate.
In her younger years, Tanaka ran various businesses including a noodle shop and a rice cake store.
