The company was established on October 1, 2005 as a result of the privatization of Japan Highway Public Corporation.[2] The company manages roadways mainly in the Kantō and Tōhoku regions as well as on Hokkaidō. Roadways in other regions of Japan are managed by Central Nippon Expressway Company and West Nippon Expressway Company.[3]
