List of supercentenarians from Asia

These are lists of Asian supercentenarians (people from Asia who have attained the age of at least 110 years). According to the Gerontology Research Group, as of November 2014 there have been over three hundred verified supercentenarian from Asia. The oldest verified Asian person ever was Misao Okawa of Japan, born 5 March 1898, aged 117 years 27 days.[1] As of August 2015, there are 23 verified living supercentenarians in Asia.[1] The oldest verified living person in Asia is a woman who has chosen to remain anonymous from Japan, born 4 August 1900, aged 115 years, 338 days.

The vast majority of verified Asian cases of supercentenarians come from Japan, but there have been 5 emigrant supercentenarians from Asia who have been verified. The oldest ever emigrant from Asia was Lucy d'Abreu (1892-2005), born in India, who died in the United Kingdom aged 113 years 197 days. The oldest living Asian emigrant is Ethel Farrell (born 1902), who is currently the oldest living person in Australia.
