The Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Matsue Japan Looks Absolutely Frightening Tauheed Ahmad June 1, 2016 Amazing & Incredible, Travel & Places 1 Comment 2067 The Eshima Ohashi bridge is catching renewed attention due to eye-popping photos that show it resembling a vertical Slip n’ Slide for cars while with an unusual kink in its middle. The bridge is a two-lane concrete road bridge that connects the city of Matsue in Shimane Prefecture to Sakaiminato in Tottori Prefecture, in Japan. The bridge total length is 1.7 kilometer, and a width of 11.3 meters, it is the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. That’s credited toward its need to let ships to pass underneath it with ease. In the recent times, the bridge has received exceptional attention since it was used in a TV commercial for Daihatsu Motor Co.’s Tanto minivan. The commercial shows the bridge from an angle that inflates the slope of the bridge’s approach. The view compression by a telephoto lens makes the viewer accept as true that the bridge is extremely steep. Daihatsu Motor wants you to be certain of that the bridge is terrifyingly steep because it wants to show off its car’s strength. Actually, the bridge has a pretty comfortable gradient of 6.1% on Shimane Prefecture side and 5.1% on Tottori Prefecture side, nothing an average car can’t handle. Several websites showing that driving over the bridge is “like a roller-coaster ride” which is all media hyperbole. Fortunately for it drivers particularly during bad weather or brake failure it looks can be deceiving. Add Contact Form UNREAL!
