This Bridge In Japan Will Make You Feel Like You’re Riding A Roller Coaster
The Eshima Ohashi bridge is the world’s third largest bridge of its kind.
Driving along Japan’s Eshima Ohashi bridge will make you feel as if you’re on a roller coaster ride – except that there’s no loops and spins for a thrilling ride.
The bridge is remarkably steep, it could either be a fun or terrifying experience driving along it – it depends if you enjoy the thrill or you’re usually scared of heights. The bridge serves as a connection for the cities of Sakaiminato and Matsue. It’s designed that way to accommodate the ships that pass underneath it.
When photographed from the front using telephoto lens, the bridge would appear really steep. But it turns out that it’s not that steep at all as both sides of the bridge have a slope gradient of 6.1 percent and 5.1 percent.
