The "Make Toyama joyful club" (Toyama o tanoshiku suru kai) supports Asanoyama where-ever they can, mostly with celebration banners.

More from the Asanoyama supporting "Make Toyama joyful club": a sumo hina doll set - with rikishi from Toyama pref. (and apparently a few others from the prefecture posing as rikishi), 2 yokozuna from the past on top, Asanoyama in the middle with more recent sekiwake Kotogaume and Wakamiyama, else mostly the present lower ranked, they made a doll even for new recruit Tanimura. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/national/20210228-OYT1T50098/

Tanbo art in Saitama: Koshigaya 2018, related to the Koshigaya jungyo this year to celebrate 60 years of city formation. Local Abi is depicted with his trademark shiko - to cheer for both local rikishi, the shikona for Abi-zeki and Irodori are  shown below, with the city kamonegi mascot

I am fortunate enough to own two of Lynn Matsuoka's sumo portraits, this one and Musashimaru (I can post a snap of that one if there is interest.)  I actually inherited both of these nearly a decade ago from another fan and friend-through-sumo, Patt Griffin.  Alas, I have fallen upon hard times and have had to consider parting with them in hopes of keeping the rent paid, cats fed, etc.  It breaks my heart, not least because they are, in fact, a legacy. I am posting here in hopes someone might offer advice on their value and where I might go to sell them?  There's always eBay, of course, but I don't want to go that route unless I have to -- and have a solid idea of their actual value.

The sumo museum presents the proper painting for the year of the tiger: Tiger and dragon viewed as wrestlers in a Sumo Tournament 龍虎見立相撲 ryuuko mitate sumo by the 2nd Utagawa Hiroshige

Toragaataru (I guess) 虎ケ當 and Ryugasoto - which could mean: Tiger attacks and dragon is out

waiting ringside are Black Cloud - Kurokumo and Lightning - Inazuma on the left, Heavy Rain - Ooame  and Valley Wind - Tanikaze on the right

Two jolly gentlemen walking along a corridor of posters at Kyushu. They pan too quickly in spots, but you get a good view of most of them.
