Expressways in Japan - Yamagata Expressway

Yamagata Expressway
山形自動車道

The Yamagata Expressway begins at the Murata JCT with the Tohoku Expressway in Miyagi Prefecture and heads west into Yamagata Prefecture towards Yamagata City and beyond to Gassan. Beyond that point to Yudonosan IC, the expressway is currently incomplete, with Route 112 making up the bit in between the two sections. The northern section eventually connects with the Nihonkai Tohoku Expressway in northern Niigata Prefecture.

The Yamagata Expressway is often used to get to:
Yamagata Zao
Gassan
