The bridge connects the Sakaiminato (Tottori) and Matsue (Shimane) regions, with a length of nearly 1.5 km, with a slope of 6.1% on Shimane and 5.1% on Tottori. This is the steepest bridge in Japan and the third longest rigid bridge in the world. However, thanks to the large length, this slope is actually completely normal and safe for you to drive through.

Eshima Ohasi was built to solve these problems. When the bridge is completed, the time of big trucks and buses traveling across the river decreases significantly. With a height of 44.7 m above the water surface (in the middle of the bridge), ships can pass easily below. Photo: Dailymail.
