A 116-year-old Japanese woman named Kane Tanaka was honored the title of world's oldest living person by Guinness World Records earlier this year.

However, Tanaka has a long way to go before she becomes the oldest person ever, an achievement of a French woman, Jeanne Louise Calment, who lived to 122 years, according to Guinness World Records.

Tanaka was born on Jan 2, 1903.
