A Japanese woman is being honored by Guinness World Records.
Kane Tanaka, 116, received official honors Saturday during a party recognizing her as the oldest living person.
She was born Jan. 2, 1903--the same year the Wright brothers flew in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. She now lives in a nursing home in Japan.
She said she gets up every day at 6 a.m. and loves doing math.
Tanaka is six years shy of the all-time record for oldest person. Jeanne Louis Calmet of France lived to 122 years 164 days. She died in August 1997.
