•about this yokai•
Oboroguruma - 朧車 - Hazy taxi.
Sometimes said to be the lingering spirit of a nobleman -who died a petty death during a parking dispute: he didn’t get the best parking spot he wanted so he picked a fight and paid the price! Now fuelled by resentment, on hazy evenings, he’ll run unsuspecting pedestrians in kyoto over just for the fun of it as a ghostly Ox cart.

Included & named in Toriyama Sekiens Konjaku Hyakki Shūi (1781) - The yokai is said to be inspired by on the carriage fight scene from ”The tale of Genji” – Most Museums seem to use this name for any oxcart-relevant yokai.
