The Eshima Ohashi Bridge is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. But that’s not what makes it so spectacular. This bridge has an incredibly steep incline on both sides, making it appear more like a theme park ride than a way to commute across the river.

This astonishing bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, above Lake Nakaumi. The architects who designed the bridge decided to make it tall enough for ships to easily pass underneath. The bridge reaches a nauseating height of 144 feet, with a 5.1% and 6.1% incline on each side.
Located in Western Japan, the Eshima Ohashi Bridge looks more like a roller coaster than a road. TAG someone who needs to see this! pic.twitter.com/aEdH7ymvrM— Earth Pics (@earthposts) June 11, 2019
It certainly spices up a morning commute.
