July 27 (UPI) -- Chiyo Miyako, the world's oldest living person, died in Japan this week at the age of 117, just days after Guinness World Records certified her title.

Chiyo was born in the Kansai region of Honshu island on May 2, 1901. She assumed the title of the world's oldest living person after the death in April of Nabi Tajima, who was also 117.

Chiyo died Sunday in Yokohama.

Guinness World Records, the renowned international certifying body for records, approved the evidence of Chiyo's longevity in her final days.
