One difficulty in finding your way around Tokyo is that hardly any streets are named (see Tokyo streets map). Granted, major thoroughfares and some well-known streets in areas such as Ginza and Shinjuku received names after World War II at the insistence of American occupation forces, and a few more have been labeled or given nicknames only the locals know.

For the most part, Tokyo address system is based on a complicated number scheme that must make the postal workers jobs here a nightmare. To make matters worse, most streets in Tokyo zigzag -- an arrangement apparently left over from the past to confuse potential attacking enemies as its mentioned in Tokyo streets map.

Among Tokyo most important named streets are Meiji Dori as you can see in Tokyo streets map, which follows the loop of the Yamanote Line and runs from Minato-ku ward in the south through Ebisu, Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku, and Ikebukuro in the north; Yasukuni Dori and Shinjuku Dori, which cut across the heart of the city east and west from Shinjuku to Chiyoda-ku; and Sotobori Dori, Chuo Dori, Harumi Dori, and Showa Dori, which pass through Ginza.

Roads play a vitally essential role as the most basic form of infrastructure supporting the lives of Tokyo residents. This role entails meeting the city enormous transport demand, while also serving as routes for evacuation and the delivery of relief supplies when a disaster occurs, in addition to functioning as a space to contain lifelines such as telephone, gas, water, and sewage lines, and telephone (see Tokyo roads map).

Traffic in Tokyo 23 wards plunged after Gov. Yuriko Koike on March 25 urged residents to remain indoors. That month, hourly congestion on Tokyo public roads, measured by distances plagued by slow traffic, was down 15% on the year to 78.4 km, and was down 42% on Sunday as its mentioned in Tokyo roads map.

Road improvement is key to alleviating traffic congestion, Tokyo greatest weakness, raising international competitiveness, and realizing a city that is comfortable, highly convenient, and has a low environmental impact. Road improvement is also essential to transforming Tokyo into a highly disaster-resistant city (see Tokyo roads map). Roads safeguard the functions of the capital when a major earthquake strikes in areas that include transport of emergency supplies and relief, and rapid restoration and recovery activities.
