Incorrect, Shanghai's elevated highways are generally wider and taller than those in Tokyo.

Videos of morning drives in Tokyo on youtube.com are now presented in HD quality.
first example:
Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway 01 HD
and then click "watch in HD", preferably in full screen on widescreen.
Watch also other videos of user cat2525jp.

On videos you can now actually recognise traffic signs and you can even see speed limits (60-80 on expressways - only!). Also impressive are road markings and other light signalisation.

Fantastic video!!!
It has to be really early in the morning, traffic is very light.

Streets are actually wider than I expected. But signs and traffic lights seems to be confusing. Sometimes I couldn't guess who has green who has red. For which line or direction particular light is?

Japanese roads (especially in Tokyo) are the best

whatever it is, it looks innovative and kills traffic noise.

One thing I noticed on all the highways is the effort put into noise reduction. I remember walking around a neighbourhood and seeing the elevated guideway... and thinking... hey... how come I can still talk quietly over highway traffic?

It may not look pretty sometimes, but they really put effort into dampening sound.
