One of the scariest looking bridges in the world isn’t what you think.
The Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan is the third largest of its kind in the world and it rises sharply so ships can pass underneath.
It connects Matsue, Shimane Prefecture and Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture over Nakaumi lake.
And the landmark was built from 1997 to 2004, making it the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan.
Now the truth behind the steep bridge has been revealed after a TikTok user shared a video which racked up 10.5 million views.
In the clip, it begins with user @hecticnick explaining his theory behind the bridge.
He said: “This bridge in Japan is not what you think it is.”
The user added: “When viewed from far away it looks impossibly steep.
“Almost like it’s a giant cliff and there’s no way cars could really be driving across it.”
Next the TikTok user, who boasts 2.7 million followers, zooms in on the bridge and reveals its myth.
In the video, he continued: “Once it’s viewed up close, you’ll see, although it’s steep, it’s not some giant cliff.”
One viewer wrote: “It’s like a rollercoaster with cars,” while another pointed: “Imagine a bike going down.”
A third joked: “A manual driver’s nightmare,” and a fourth commented: “All fun and games until winter comes.”
Meanwhile a fifth admitted: “It’s exactly what I thought it was.”
