This Bridge in Japan Looks like a Rollercoaster

A bridge in Japan is catching attention online thanks to eye-popping photos that show it resembling a vertical Slip n' Slide for cars while with an unusual kink in its middle.

The Eshima Ohashi bridge, located in the Chugoku region of Honshu, is the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. That's credited toward its need to allow ships to pass below it with ease.

Fortunately for it drivers — especially during bad weather or brake failure — looks can be deceiving.

The bridge was designed to let ships pass underneath, which is why the steep, abrupt inclines from the banks of Lake Nakaumi are necessary. Drivers descending into Matsue or Sakaiminato (the two cities linked by the bridge) are treated with panoramic views of their destinations. Eshima Ohashi is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third-largest in the world.
