No, it’s not a roller coaster! This is how a bridge in Japan looks like! You simply have to leave it to Japanese engineers to amaze you at every step, whether it’s some kind of creepy technological invention or just for outstanding cities that look like something out of this world.
This is the Eshima Ohashi bridge, built on the banks of Lake Nakaumi, that connects the city of Matsue with the city of Sakaiminato (and the other way around, of course!).
The Eshima Ohashi bridge is the third largest rigid-frame bridge in the world, with a height of 144 ft (44 meters) and a gradient of 5.1 percent on the Tottori Prefecture side and a 6.1 percent gradient on the Shimane Prefecture side.
The reason why this 1 mile (1.6 km) long bridge is so tall is based on the fact that a lot of big ships have to travel under it every day, giving the Eshima Ohashi bridge a real roller coaster look and feel to it.
And again, no, it’s not a roller coaster! This is how a bridge in Japan looks like! By the way, be sure to wear a seat belt while crossing it!
