Guinness World Records for having the oldest living twin sisters in the world. These Japanese sisters are 107 years and 300 days old. The Japanese sisters Umeno Sumiyama and Kome Kodama have broken the record of the late Japanese twin sisters Kin Narita and Jin Kani.
Umeno and Comey were born on November 5, 1913, on the island of Shodoshima. The official announcement was made on Monday, a holiday in Japan and a day to honor the elderly, confirming them as the oldest twins.
As a precaution in the current situation of Kovid-19, the staff has sent their official certificates to the sisters living in their special care centers in different parts of Japan. Guinness World Records said in a statement on Monday that the twin sisters will be crowned on September 1.
Former record holders Kin and Jin died at the age of 107 and 108, respectively. Kin died in January 2000 and Jin the following year. Born in August, the Japanese sisters have both starred in the last decades. The sisters, who currently hold the record, jokingly said that Kinn and Jinn were getting older. Umeno has four children and Kaume has three children.
Japan has the longest life expectancy in the world. Moreover, the elderly are highly regarded by the Japanese community. The 118-year-old Canadian Tanaka is the oldest living person in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
