ABOUT THE MASCOT CHARACTER IRIE AYUMI
Irie Ayumi is Kitakubu’s mascot character and was designed by illustrator suteneko. The Kanji in her name, “入家” means “Home” and “あゆみ” means “Walking”. So if you reverse her name to “Ayumi Irie” it means “Walking Home”.
“Kitakubu” in Japanese means the “Go Home Club” and refers to students who go straight home after school without engaging in school-sanctioned extracurricular activities.
