Eshima Ohashi Bridge

Many drivers avoid this Japanese bridge



The Eshima Ohashi bridge is the third largest rigid-frame bridge in the world
(Length: 1.7 km; Width: 11.3 m; Height: 44.7 m). Built on the banks of
Lake Nakaumi, connecting the cities Matsue and Sakaiminato, it looks more like
a roller coaster than a bridge because it was designed to be high enough to let
ships pass underneath. It has a gradient of 5.1 percent on the
Tottori Prefecture side and 6.1 percent on the Shimane Prefecture side.
