This Is Not A Roller Coaster. It’s A Terrifying Bridge In Japan!


The Eshima Ohashi bridge, which connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, is about a mile long. It is the third largest rigid frame bridge in the world.

It’s height and steep incline is enough to make the most confident drivers fearful of driving over it.

Can you imagine being stuck in a traffic jam on this bridge in a vehicle with a manual transmission?

The reason for it’s height is so large ships can pass by underneath. And despite looking terrifying, the Eshima Ohashi bridge is actually quite safe.
