Driven by

Kentaru Mitsuba
Mrs Mitsuba

The car of the Mitsuba family has lots of different appearances (when it's not being used [which is frequent] it is parked in the garage). A major role is in 'Mom takes us for a ride' where Mrs Mitsuba accidentally makes the car break down while trying to drive it. It is seen in 'Everybody goes on a picnic' where the car breaks down after the tyre gets punctured. A metallic blue car is seen in 'Kagechiyo becomes a scrubber' in the scene where Shinzo, Shishimaru and Jippou wash it while using Kagechiyo as a scrubber. It is seen in another episode; Mr Mitsuba drives it in that. In the new series, a modern red saloon is seen again in 'Mum takes the wheel' where mum drives it. A hatchback is seen behind a dust cover in 'Mum's birthday'. In "The spirit of the inn", Mr. Mitsuba drives another maroon saloon to an old-fashioned hotel and it breaks down on the motorway. With no other option, they abandon the car.

The original model and the metallic blue model can be based on a Nissan Bluebird or Nissan Sunny or Toyota Corolla, the contemporary saloon can be based on a Vauxhall Cavalier, the hatchback can be based on a Toyota Vitz or a Nissan March, while the one used in "The spirit of the inn" may be based on a Toyota Crown.
