Yoshigiku Ito (3 August 1856 – 26 November 1966) was a verified Japanese supercentenarian and at the time of her death the world's oldest living woman. She is erroneously verified as a male supercentenarian, but contemporary news reports confirm she was female.[1] She was succeeded as the world's oldest living woman by Johanna Booysen. She remained the Japanese recordholder until Mito Umeta surpassed her age in 1973.
