Yago had his cake one day early  - his birthday is today on day 1: "24. Last year was the same timing. I want to congratulate myself on my own."

He received a cake with a soccer ball, as he is sumo's number 1 soccer fan.

Kakuryu turns 33 on the 10th, but since he was in Shibuya on the 8th, the press gave him cakes in advance (rather than in Fukushima)

I don't think he kept them to show them tomorrow - maybe we'll get some more birthday pics with others

Nishikigi for his 28th birthday today got the usual cake from the press - one like a shiroboshi (white star=win)

Either my eyes are failing me or the cake says: "31th Anniversary".  Sometimes I wonder why Japanese cake shops don't just stick to messages in Japanese.  I guess it's the thought that counts...

Although no one usually refers to a birthday as an anniversary in western culture, I suppose anniversary is acceptable since by definition a birthday is the anniversary of one's birth.

That may be, but the 1th of anything is decidedly not a thing, anniversary or otherwise.

Maybe the chef of the patisserie learned in France and wanted to give it a touch of anniversaire  ...

and birthdays are not something that traditionally gets celebrated in Japan - except that of the tenno

(and Tochinoshin is neither of Japanese nor of English origin)

Chiyomaru's 28 birthday today

SaevV67zkPvvfyZZ.jpg:thumbvid

not from the press -  Chiyomaru got his birthday cake from the rikishi - but in the face, and thus to the question of the taste "Don't know"

Is that Chiyoshoma smiling?!? I don't know which it is, but I feel like I've never seen it before...
