Heres some:
What really makes the japanese junktions stand out is much more the "narrow street and tall buildings" than the actual greatness of the knot itself.

Nonetheless they are indeed impressive.

That's a bridge-tunnel combination, similar to the Oresund bridge/tunnel between Denmark and Sweden, or the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT) in Virginia. The Japanese made the tunnel entrance into a touristic spot.

Awesome expressways! Those are some of the highest quality roads I've ever seen. They make the US and Europe look like developing countries! From these amazing videos, there is no doubt in my mind that Japan is the most advanced country in the world.

Just want to share a very nice driving video in Japan on Youtube. I'm subscribed to this guy so I get updates often, but this one especially caught my eye (available in HD):

Only the downtown network has 2x2 lanes. The Bayshore and Ringroads, as well as other radial expressways leading outside Tokyo are 2x3 lanes.

But yeah, the difference with, say, South Korea, is remarkable, especially if you consider Tokyo has an average density of 14.061 people per km², while Seoul has 17.219 people per km². Seoul has several 2x4 and 2x5 expressways.

An extension of Circular Route C2 will open on march 28th, 2010, between routes 3 and 4 west of central Tokyo. All of it is underground. Another extension to the Bayshore Expressway (B on the map) will be opened to 2013, C2 will be completed by then.

Route C2 will ease the burden on the central Tokyo Expressway network, especially route C1 (the Inner Circular of Tokyo).

In the future, Tokyo will get 4 ring roads;

C1: around downtown Tokyo
C2: around central Tokyo
Tokyo-Gaikan: around Tokyo proper
Ken-Ō: around metropolitan Tokyo
