The Expressway Alternatives

Route 7 covers much of the same ground as the Akita Expressway and is free to use. Stoplights make the trip much slower though.

Through much of Yurihonjo, Route 7 runs parallel to portions of the Nihonkai Tohoku Expressway. This expressway is being extended through Nikaho parallel Route 7 and will eventually connect to Sakata in Yamagata.
