Obake zaka (ghost slope)

おばけ坂 Obake zaka (ghost slope)

Is this a trick by a ghost? You can experience a mysterious phenomenon on a quiet road in the middle of a field when you stop your car on the steep slope and put it into neutral. You will feel like the car is climbing the slope on its own. This is a visual trick that can be only found in a few places in Japan.
