Tamako Kitashirakawa: a major boost to Magi Athletics

September 17, 2029

Weekly Report Posted: December 09, 2012 09:28

Tamako KItashirakawa is a shop owner with a heart of gold. The wife of Mitakihara Magi badminton legend Ooji Mochikura, she is the General Manager of the only Lawson Station in British Columbia, located in Mitakihara Town, BC. A 10,000-square meter facility complete with food, books and other specialty items from Japan, the Mitakihara Lawson is one of the top tourist attractions in the city. Her assistants at the store are fellow M-Town grads Kanna Makino and Midori Tokiwa.

"I like being the manager of a store that is really dear to me," said Kitashirakawa, who is known by the locals as Tamako. "I graduated from Mitakihara University in 2018 with a degree in business administration and I have put it to good use. Our profit margins have been pretty high and we are the most profitable Lawson Market branch in Canada."

But Tamako is not only the general manager of one of the most popular Japanese goods stores in the city. She's also the president of the Rose Arrow Boosters.

"I joined the Rose Arrow Boosters in 2021, after I earned my MBA at Madoka," Tamako said. "Through hard work, dedication and a commitment to donating my dues to helping fund Magi and Puella Magi athletics, I rose up the ranks and eventually was elected president of the RABs last year."

Admittedly, it's tough fulfilling two different obligations, according to Tamako, who became a naturalized citizen in 2021.

"But you never get bored," she said. " You always get to do something you like, whether it's supporting your alma mater or managing a business as a result of earning your college degree. You get occupied. You get deadlines. You network with so many different people, and it's fun.
"It always gets me energized to do the things I love and help leave an impact on the community I am a part of."

After her tenure as president expires at the end of the 2030-31 sports season, Tamako will focus on one thing, and one thing only. "I want to help make the Lawson here in M-Town one of the best places to shop, eat, and experience Japanese culture," she said. "This store is my livelihood and I want to be remembered for making Lawson Stadium a gem of this city."
