Japan’s Terrifying Road Is Enough To Give The Most Confident Driver Nightmares

1

It is a hill start to give even the most confident learner driver nightmares. The Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan – the third largest of its kind in the world – rises sharply so ships can pass underneath. The concrete road bridge spans a mile across Lake Nakaumi, linking the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato.

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%.
