Incredibly Steep Bridge in Japan Looks Like a Thrilling Roller Coaster for Drivers

The Eshima Ohashi bridge is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world, but its uniqueness does not stop there. This incredible structure appears to have an extraordinarily steep incline on both sides, making it look more like a roller coaster that you can enjoy from the seat of your car.

The astounding bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, which rises above Lake Nakaumi. Since many boats utilize the lake for transportation, the architects decided to make it lofty enough for ships to easily pass underneath. The bridge reaches a tremendous height of 44 meters, with a 5.1% and 6.1% incline on each side.
