Driving on Expressways / Toll Roads
Some toll gates have a sign marked "ETC専用" (Exclusive for vehicles equipped with ETC). ETC stands for "Electronic Toll Collection System", and use of gates with this sign is not possible unless your vehicle is equipped with an ETC device and with an ETC card inserted.
If this is not the case, please pass through the gate indicated "一般" (Others). Toll fees may be charged at the entrance or exit depending on the road.
