There has been recent news about the scariest-looking bridge in Japan that connects Sakaiminato City of Tottori Prefecture and Yatsuka-cho (Daikon Island) of Shimane Prefecture. The Ejima Ohashi Bridge 日本江島大橋 was first built in 1997 and underwent construction before it was reopened in 2004.


Also known as Betabumizaka, which means acceleration bridge for its steep slope, the Eshima Ohashi Bridge stretches approximate 1.7km long and was ‘credited’ as third largest of its kind in the world. There were also reports about the bridge having a gradient of 6.1% in Shimane Prefecture slope, and 5.1% in Tottori Prefecture slope. Interestingly, its popularity rose after it was featured in the Daihatsu Tanto Custom TV commercial in 2013.
