  1. He was born Kinjiro Myake, but since his wife's family lacked a male heir, he changed his name to Jiroemon Kimura, becoming the ninth member of the family to bear that name.
  2. According to Kimura’s nephew Tamotsu, his birthday is actually March 19. Official records say he was born April 19 because an official misprinted the month when records from merging towns were consolidated in 1955.
