A 117-year-old woman with a weakness for fizzy drinks and chocolate has become Japan’s oldest person on record, as the country marks a public holiday devoted to its senior citizens.

Kane Tanaka, who had already been recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s oldest living person in March last year, achieved the all-time Japanese age record on Saturday, when she became 117 years and 261 days old.

The supercentenarian, who lives in a nursing home in the south-western city of Fukuoka, beat the previous record, held by another Japanese woman, Nabi Tajima, who died in April 2018 aged 117 years and 260 days.

Tanaka celebrated the achievement with a bottle of Coke – her favourite drink – and wore a T-shirt with her face printed on it that had been given to her by members of her family.

The seventh of nine children, Tanaka was born on 2 January 1903, the year the Wright brothers made their first powered flight and the first Tour de France was held. She has lived through the reigns of five Japanese emperors.

She was born before the Cold World, WW2, Nazism, WWI. All these events happened in front of her eyes and she almost lived the entire 20th century. 

For references this is how the world looked like when she was born:

and whether she feels SJWs are protesting about movements “we already dealt with”

There is no Yogoslavia actually (that appeared after WWI), instead what you are seeing is freshly independent Serbia and Montenegro. The modern day territories of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina were still part of Austria-Hungary, while Macedonia and southern Serbia were still controlled by the Ottoman Empire. At that time, Romania was missing a big portion of its territory and Greece was also significantly smaller compared to today.
