Eshima Ohashi bridgeI have never been particularly afraid of heights. However, the bridge pictured above made me crazy due to its unusually steep rollercoaster-like structure.  It is located in Shimane and Tottori prefectures.

The two-lane concrete road bridge stretches 1.7km or just over 1 mile long and has a width of 11.4 metres making it the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. 

This enormous bridge could give me a little more than a rush if I ever make my way down it.

The Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato over Lake Nakaumi. It stands enormously tall and has an incredibly steep climb and descent.

Plus there’s always something funny about watching those small Japanese cars work their way up such a steep hill!

Just to give you a brief idea of how drivers use this bridge for going up and down. Please enjoy the ride along with the driver mentioned in the following video clip, It will give you an interesting glimpse of how it looks like to drive on the bridge.
