Egy kis olvasási feladat a világ talán egyetlen hullámvasút hídjáról! 

There are lots of marvels from the architectural field all around the world including the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, and The leaning tower of Pisa, which have withstood the tests of time and have astonished the modern architectural geniuses. But there are many modern architectural marvels such as the Burj Khalifa, the Infinity Tower in Dubai and the Three Gorges Dam in China that give strong competition to the ancient marvels. Japan has some of the best engineering minds in the world when it comes to not only electronics, but also in the field of construction. Some of the most unbelievable construction marvels can be seen in the Land of the rising sun. But nothing can beat the Eshima Ohashi Bridge that seems more like a rollercoaster rather than a bridge.

This bridge in Japan is not only a construction marvel, but also somewhat looks like it is fun to ride on it. Japan has managed to make driving a car on that bridge both picturesque and fun for people who like a bit of adventure.

The bridge that connects Matsue and Sakaiminato is built over the Lake Nakaumi and instead of the usual bridges which open up in the middle to let a ship through, this bridge is actually built high in the middle so that the ships can pass through without the need of opening the bridge. There is a steep climb from one side and a descent that will give minor heart attacks to the best of drivers while going down.
