The bridge has a heart-stopping incline of 6.1 percent, which is enough to put us on edge just thinking about it!

Eshima Ohashi links Matsue in the Shimane Prefecture to Sakaiminato in the Tottori Prefecture over Nakaumi Lake.

Its special architecture was necessary as the lake is extremely busy. Its steep incline ensures boats and ships can pass by under the bridge without delay!

Ships can pass by underneath without causing any disturbance.

When you approach it head on, it almost looks vertical. Eek!
