With that said, even the most seasoned drivers on the road feel like they are getting themselves a heart attack whenever they cross this unique bridge.

The concrete bridge links the cities of Matsue ad Sakaiminato. There’s also Lake Nakaumi that has busy stream traffic which is why it’s constructed like that of a roller coaster. This ensures that the two modes of transportation will not affect each other. This is also the reason they build it so tall even the largest boat can pass underneath it.
