When I wrote the article here I followed the western sources, but acording to the footnote on the Wikipedia page it seems these are plainly in error; all known historic Japanese sources seem to agree that the Donkey also has a vertical one-step move. So I guess I should correct the article accordingly; unfortunately this requires me to make a new mnemonic image.
