In the dissertation of Margaret Greenhalgh: "Aikido and Spirituality: Japanese Religious Influences in a Martial Art" she states a direct connection Daoism and Ōmoto kyo because of Ushitora no Konjin being of daoist origin.
(I can't give the page from here. It's in at the beginning of the chapter about the daoist influences on aikidō.)

I can't value this.
But the parts of this work, which I can judge seem to be build on profound research.
Interesting - did she work from English sources?

Best,

Chris
