In this paper, the current state of road pavement technology in Japan is described. The traffic and weather conditions that affect pavement design and the methods of pavement selection used are examined. Attention is drawn to the type and structure of portland cement concrete (PCC) used, as well as its performance and construction methods. Future trends in development of PCC pavement technology in Japan are also described.
