Here's the solution. As for the lake, it wasn't clearly specified, but it definitely is one of the five Fuji-lakes (Yamanaka, Kawaguchi-, Sai-, Shōji- and Motosu-lake).

the lake is identifiable by the position of / snow on Fuji-san - guess again - not all is in the database.

Well, when I can trust my brain database, which is unfortunately very fragmentary and not comparable to Doitsuyamas unequalled and unexhaustable one, it's the Lake Yamanaka, but I can be wrong.

Anyway in the future everybody will name it Lake Sadogatake.

Here's one I think is of Oorora, with some role-playing humor added.

If you want to use the format for your caption contests, you can make your own motivational posters here.

If any of you happen to be role-players, there's a ton of RPG-related 'motivational' posters here.

This isn't Orora, not even close. It's Torsten Scheibler, a quite strong ama-zumo wrestler. Orora is looking completely different. :-D

Sorry (Nodding yes...) , I've only ever seen one poor-quality pic of Oorora, and I don't know any ama-zumo wrestlers. I just thought it was a good picture, and made a guess as to the identity.

you must be correct since the "bu" kanji seems the same with the "bu" in Daiyubu.

but I'm trying to remember this from 45 years ago..

Can you copy the kanji as well? Then we'd know who these are for sure... It seems like most of them are from the early to end of sixties, which was "my time". I'm pretty sure Yutakayama (directly under Tsurugamine) and Wakachichibu are there as well.

It's Myobudani or Myoubudani to be more precise, and I'm with Kintamayama here, having the captions can't hurt (I know, often they are in inconvenient places to bring together).
