Carried on page 235 of the February 8, 1873 edition of "The Far East." The article states that four years earlier there were no cars such as these but only palanquins for the nobility and commoners. Foreigners brought these types of vehicles into Japan, and entrepreneurs manufactured these boat-shaped baby car-type rickshaws.
