Kaku Yamanaka (山中 かく Yamanaka Kaku) (11 December 1894 - 5 April 2008) was a Japanese supercentenarian.[1] She died at the age of 113 years, 116 days. At the time of her death, Yamanaka was the sixth-oldest verified living person in the world, and the oldest person in Japan.[2] She lived her last years at a nursing home in Yatomi, Aichi Prefecture.[2][3]

According to officials at the nursing home, Yamanaka loved singing and dancing.[3] Following her death, the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry of Japan reported that a 112-year-old woman from Okinawa Prefecture, was the nation's new oldest person.[4] This turned out to be Kama Chinen.
