720 Degrees in Japan
Does anybody else have a road with SINGLE CURVE that is more than 720 degrees? (Parking garages need not apply.)
In Japan near Shizuoka is a structure called the Kawazu-Nanadaru Loop Bridge. It is on Highway 414 south of Tokyo on the way to hot springs in Izu. You're on this twisty mountain road that suddenly shoots straight off of a cliff onto a super-ultra-glorified spiral off-ramp that loops twice around as you drop about 150 feet, to continue the same direction you were headed in the first place.
I rode this road in 2004. There was construction and traffic was going only one way at a time. Here are a couple of crappy AVIs I shot that day while waiting for our turn. I can't seem to get AVIs to embed properly, so the links follow.
