I never understood why the Japanese use so many road paint on their urban expressways... It's just excessive sometimes...

There's something I don't understand about the density of Tokyo, there's I think a max of density you can create, I don't see any parks, are there enough green cityparks for people, just to relax and get a fresh breeze ...?
Another thing I still haven't seen are pictures of transit expressways. I mean expressways connecting major cities, these pics posted here are all urban pics ...

Nice video from the Tokyo Monorail. You can see a lot of street scenes and some expressways HD is even better.

Lack of parks isn't a problem. With efficient and fast public transport you are out of a city within minutes if you want a fresh air.

In minutes? Do you know how wast Tokyo metropolitan area is?
Don't exaggerate man.
Public transport is great thing but I would rather prefer nice park in my neighborhood than new PT line which usually goes to crowded city center anyway.

Not all of it is crowded and park-less. You can be in parts of Tokyo where there are parks.

Oh my, 11 billion U$ for just 14 km of expressway, that has to be the most expensive road on the world.

No, there is a new expressway ender construction right now, further inside Tokyo bay between Rainbow Bridge and Haneda Airport which includes a long bridge from one of the artificial islands on the Chiba side to just north of Haneda on the Tokyo side.

All infrastructure in Japan is very expensive. Especially in the Tokyo area where a lot of new expressways are build underground (like the C2 route of the Shuto network).
