  • this time we go straight to the Sea of Japan

  • spending between SHIMANE and TOTTORI Prefecture is the ESHIMA OHASHI

  • Japan's most terrifying looking bridge. The closest major access point is YONAGO

  • the crossroads of the Sannin area it's a short train ride from there to Sakae Minato

  • and then to the bridge

  • The Eshima Ohashi looks innocent, until you get down there

  • Why is it terrifying? This!

  • 6.1 percent grade slope on the SHIMANE side

  • 5.1 on the Tottori side. 250 meters of concrete in the middle

  • making it the world's third longest Ramen bridge, number one in Japan

  • the angle is deceptive It looks like it's not finished

  • cars falling off the top, plummeting into the sea below

  • cars can cross the roller coaster bridge for free. So can bicycles and runners, too.

  • One of the longest arching bridges in the world now that's a challenge

  • The Eshima Ohashi is 1.4 kilometers long 8.699 Miles An Hour

  • the look of the slope has made this bridge world-famous

  • I rented a bicycle to scope out this civil engineer's dream come true

  • So here I am right here. We're going to start the climb

  • and this angle it looks like

  • looks like a stairway to heaven or something like that.

  • Now on the left side of there is walkway but bicycles aren't allowed to

  • enter that so we have to stay on this white line

  • so there is maybe about 20 centimeters separating me and the car

  • or truck

  • here we go

  • from the bottom looking up it's like staring at the top of a skyscraper

  • Well, the only way to summit is to peddle this bicycle

  • how hard can it be

  • okay

  • I'm startin' to fell it a little bit

  • I just started I'm tired

  • So, why they make this bridge you ask

  • it needed to be high enough to allow large ships to pass under

  • however the waterway really isn't that wide

  • I'm sure some civil engineers enjoyed themselves making this one

  • I don't know, these cars

  • on the right are little bit too close for comfort

  • approximately 15,000 vehicles cross this bridge, every day

  • there aren't any statistics on bicycles yet

  • I can see the goal up ahead

  • I'm almost there

  • almost there means the real hard part is about to start

  • fatigue has started to set in

  • about a hundred meters to go to the top

  • my legs are gone!

  • but the view is awesome

  • try to keep it steady

  • alright

  • there's an observation point normally for walkers

  • great views all the way to mount DAISEN

  • five minutes to get to the top

  • and you have quite a view

  • I can see all the way to DAISEN

  • And YONAGO City

  • The buses and trucks whizzing by

  • are just a little bit scary

  • As soon as big truck goes by we're gonna go to

  • downhill

  • wow!

  • that's a big truck

  • better let this traffic go by

  • I wonder if locals get a thrill at the top as

  • they drive down towards TOTTORI Prefecture

  • roller coaster bridge is its nickname

  • Me? it's about to get real again this is the

  • very top looking down the other side

  • okay this is just like a roller coaster

  • you get to the very top there's a second where everything slows down

  • it just goes down

  • all that hard work to get up here

  • and here's your reward or penalty depends on how good your brakes are

  • and the condition of your bicycle one mistake

  • One mistake

  • and the rider can go over the handlebars onto the road

  • let's not think about disasters though. View is just too good to ignore

  • what goes up must come down

  • and if your stuff is on the other side you get to do it again

  • the slope on this side isn't as bad

  • Its easier to enjoy the view

  • now going back down

  • this thing is scary

  • why I'm doing this again

  • 6point....

  • 6.1 percent great downhill

  • looks like I'm going straight into the sea

  • bicycle kept gaining speed

  • The Posted Speed Limit Is Forty 40 Miles An Hour

  • I have a feeling I was exceeding that

  • I'm peddling but nothing is moving

  • I'm going so fast!

  • I'm alive!

  • I'm alive

  • back on the ground it felt like I've won the Tour de France or something

  • then I started to wonder what's it like to run this thing

  • yeah

  • let's do this

  • I'm halfway there, you see behind me

  • for runners looking to pick a fight ESHIMA OHASHI presents a challenge

  • for hardcore runners this could even be considered paradise

  • something that we just love

  • It's here

  • I'm here this amazing bridge needs to be conquered

  • The view is spectacular

  • I reached the top in about three minutes

  • Down we go to the Tottori side

  • The slope is still steep but curbs a bit

  • alright let's go back up

  • good thing is that about this be like a runner's

  • Paradise

  • and something we just love

  • I take that back, man

  • It's harder than I thought

  • keep going!

  • The sea, that's the goal

  • The Shimane side has a steeper slope,remember?

  • it's like a ski jump minus the skis and snow

  • I'm not in control of my legs.

  • It's kind of scary

  • I can't stop myself

  • 2.8 kilometers 4.90 MPH complete in 14 minutes and 10 secondes
