This bridge, the Eshima Ohashi bridge, is definitely unique. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. Located in the Chūgoku region of Honshu, in the western part of Japan, the bridge connects Sakaiminato and Yatsukacho Eshima, spanning a mile across Lake Nakaumi. It was built to allow the passage of large cargo ships towards the open sea.
The rollercoaster-like effect seems all the stronger when the bridge is photographed from the front with a telephoto lens, which makes the climb seem even more abrupt. In reality, the inclines on each side are only 6.1% and 5.1%.
