Eshima Ohashi Bridge (Japanese: 江島大橋) is a rigid-frame bridge in Japan that connects Matsue, Shimane Prefecture and Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture over Nakaumi lake. It was built from 1997 to 2004. It is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. Images of the bridge have widely circulated on the internet, due to it appearing very steep from a short distance, but in actuality the Shimane side has a gradient of 6.1% and Tottori side of 5.1%.
