The oldest twins in the world


The oldest twins in the world

The Japanese twin sisters have been included in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest twins in the world. Umeno Sumiyama and Koume Kodama were born on November 1913, 5, on the island of Syodo. Umeno has four children and Koume has two children. The twins now live in a 107-year-old Umeno and Kume nursing home.

They broke the record set by Japanese twin sisters Kin and Jin in 2000 (Kin and Jin were 107 years and 175 days old). According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, 125% of the 29 million Japanese are 65 and older, and nearly half of them will be in the top 100 this year. Earlier we reported that the oldest person in the world is also Japanese. (
