"I go the extra mile for Yoto": Hotaru Ichijou

Hotaru Ichijou, a sophomore liberal arts major from Tokyo, is the wife of Mitakihara Magi kicker Yoto Inokuma. Ichijou and Inokuma met each other as pen pals back in secondary school and ever since Ichijou emigrated to Canada as a high school teen, she and Inokuma have been together and are now married. There is no rush for the two of them to begin a family any time soon, Ichijou said in an interview at Your Silver Garden this week.

"Yoto and I are rooming together in the dorms because we're now married and I'm not in a rush to have a child," Ichijou said. "I would rather enjoy the time I have being with Yoto and cheering him on when he gets on the field to make a conversion or a field goal.

"Yoto is always kicking himself for not being consistent enough, for not being committed enough to make enough field goals to win the award they give out at the end of the season (the Lou Groza Award). I don't think we've ever won that in a while, but that doesn't matter to me. I have someone that really cares for me and helps me out with my classwork.

"He's such a gentlemen. Yoto always does the little things right and treats every lady with respect. He doesn't talk down to anyone, and always listens. He wants to be a good husband and allow me to have a say on things, but I always need his approval.

"Yoto knows Mitakihara more than I do. I've only been here for a few years, and he's been here longer. I love this city and Canada. I had never even tried this dish called poutine and I thought at first it was unusual, but then I started to like the dish and now it's one of my favorites. There's so many wonderful places to eat out in Mitakihara, and also in Vancover and Victoria. British Columbia just continues to amaze me with the wonderful people and hospitality. And a lot of people here speak Japanese, which is really important.

"I really hope Yoto doesn't consider turning professional and plays in the NFL after we graduate. I want him to find work here so that we can settle down. I want to be a school teacher here or a receptionist or clerk. I like the opportunities here in Canada. I don't think I would have gotten a new outlook on life without Yoto.

"So I am willing to go the extra mile myself to help both of us achieve our dreams. Football is just one part of the things that bind us together. Yoto is that special someone I can confide my future in, so if I'm willing to go the extra mile, he's ready to do the same thing. After all, he plays for the Best College Football Team in All of College Football. Who could ask for more?"
