Would make a good Christmas cake. Have a good one Akinomaki (couldn't find another way to get a message to you, your inbox seems full).

There had been a sand sculpture festival on the German part of the island of Usedom last year, with the theme "Journey around the world", and for Japan there also was a rikishi: the pic made it to the Jiji database today.

Sand sculpture in Usedom 

Sand sculptures on display as part of the sand sculpture festival in Ahlbeck on the island of Usedom, Germany, 29 December 2016. Sculptors created figures centred on the theme of a trip around the world during the festival in March 2016 using some 9,500 cubic metres of sand. The sculptures have now been put on display for the general public in the open. Photo: Stefan Sauer/dpa-Zentralbild/ZB

Two things:

1. CLEARLY showing favoritism for Hanamaru

2. It's Shodai not Hananofuji

Actually Three Things:

3. WHY SO MUCH HANA?!

So, I recently bought these two ukiyo-e from Ebay:

left%20side_zpsln0opj5o.jpg~originalright%20side_zpswt4ezi0p.jpg~original

They're the left and right panels of a tryptych, and if I'm correctly reading the banzuke that was conveniently included in the image, it's from the Natsu 1893 basho. I would obviously love to find a genuine copy of the center panel, but for display purposes I'd be happy to use a reproduction if that's the best I can do. Unfortunately, the artist is probably also given in the center panel, so we can only guess as to who that was. The seller was guessing it was Utagawa school, though. Has anyone seen a print that might plausibly be the missing center?

I searched for Sumo ukiyo-e on Google images and was looking for the yellowish stands with the red edging, so I was quite surprised to realise how similar the wall picture at the Kokugikan is to the scene on your triptych. It even has a man with a red and white Yuukata on the left. See here.

OK the Yuukata is a red herring, but the rest is pretty similar.

I did the same thing, and found many generally similar images starting from the middle of the 19th century. In one sense this is helpful. There are any number of center panels I could print out that would look vaguely correct when framed along with the two I have. In another sense, this may make it rather difficult to track down the exact right one.

I think I have seen the exact same one, but can't find it: this search gives some similar ones of that kind - only that I can't read the last kanji in the title on the pic and the search isn't 100% correct: https://www.google.de/search?q=勧進大相撲取組之図&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwin8cOJjY3SAhVH0xQKHQjJD8AQ_AUICSgC&biw=1280&bih=625

Edit: other pics have the stroke below, so it really has to be the old version of 図 - the search is exact

Oh, no wonder I couldn't track it down. 圖 would be it then. Thanks! I should see more good hits for what I'm looking for.

It might not be that hard to recognize the correct center panel once I actually find it. The shimpan are dressed rather more colorfully than is the norm, and all four pillars holding up the roof seem to be white and red, rather than the more frequent all red, or with the colors of the four directions.

It's just Cheers to the Yokozuna Pig. Is the place good 808Morgan?

The shop is at the entrance of the B1F food area in GRAN ROOF, so you won’t miss it. You will see the mascot character “Yokozuna Pig” (commonly called ‘Bu-chan’, at the right of the picture), which appears on Japanese commercials.

Your Google-do is weak, young deshi.

Kampai -- traditional Japanese toast.
Yokozuna -- Wearer of the tsuna
Buhi -- Japanese onomatopoeia of the sound a pig makes. Also a common nickname for a cute piggy.

The pig is the mascot of a Nagoya-based restaurant chain called Yabaton. (矢場とん) http://www.english.yabaton.com/
