The internet is a glum place. On most days, it is full of hate, anger and pictures of travesty, injustice and war. However, sometimes, some photos surface that can fill your life up with some much needed sunshine.

On Aug 06, Twitter user @yoshiaki9500 posted an amazing shot on Twitter. In the photo, a group of sumo wrestlers can be seen frolicking in a sunflower field, their cheery faces beaming in the sunlight. The image has been described by Twitter as one that "pollinates joy".

The photo was apparently taken in Japan's Hiratani village in Yoshino-gun, which lies south-west to the city of Tokyo.

Sumo wrestlers, also known as Rikishi, are traditional to the Japanese sport of sumo wrestling, and are usually associated withe strength and machismo. Rarely is a Rikishi described as "cute" or "adorable". However, the funny faces the wrestlers while enjoying their day in the sun made many on Twitter do just that.

Some were even inspired to create a cross-over meme by inserting the currently trending meme "Green Shirt Guy" into the photo.
