The wanyūdō (輪入道), literally "wheel" (輪) "monk" (入道), is a character from Japanese mythology, a yōkai relatively well known from Japanese folklore.
The wanyūdō is said to take the form of a burning wheel of an oxcart bearing the tormented face of a man. Various folklore stories claim that he is the doomed soul of a tyrannical daimyo who during his lifetime was known to have his victims shot on the back of an oxcart.
He is said to guard the gates of hell and to roam back and forth along the road between this world and the underworld, frightening townspeople as they pass by and seizing the souls of anyone who gets too close to take them to hell with him.
