Oikawa raised three children while running a Japanese-style inn. She was active until her 90s, and was cited by her hometown for giving people "the dream for and hope of longevity for living through the Meiji, Taisho, Showa and Heisei eras." She received medical care at her home after her health deteriorated in February 2001.[1]
