Yone Minagawa, who was born in southwestern Japan on Jan. 4, 1893, was listed as the world's oldest person by the International Committee on Supercentenarians (ICS) after the death of U.S. resident Emma Faust Tillman, also 114, on Sunday. Minagawa, who lives in a nursing home in Fukuoka prefecture, southwestern Japan, rises early each morning and likes to eat sweets, especially traditional sweet red beanpaste buns, a nursing home official said. During her birthday celebration this month, Minagawa beamed at those around her and blew out several candles on a cake decorated with her likeness. When the mayor came this morning to tell her that she'd become the oldest person in the world, she smiled and said, 'Oh, really?' the official added.
