Traveling over the bridge several times we did not find it was really steep nor scary. It is impressive engineering, and an incline was present but certainly not overwhelming to make it one of the ten scariest bridges in the world. Disappointed.

But not like the pictures or at least mine did not turn out like the real scary ones . Overall it's worth visiting for a picture but don't get too excited.

Nothing much except for a photo shot. It is really not that steep and also not scary. The incline is bearable:

This is one of those side notes you should notice while in the area. You will most likely drive over it at some point if you're in the area and it's interesting enough to pay attention to while you're approaching and driving over it.

It didn't look anything like the photo on a leaflet. I want to know where the photo was taken & what kind of lens was used. Not photoshopped, was it?

OK, it is great bridge and as we visited great Yushien Garden, we also drove over it, altogether four times. But most photoes lie, it really is not frightening and much more demanding hills you meet easily when driving some alpine roads. Not worth driving...More

It's nice to say you rode over one of the Worlds tallest bridges, that's about all the excitement you get from it. Nothing majorly that stands out past the initial slope from Matsue side to other.
