Although it goes against the OSM model, all roads above tertiary in Japan follow their legal designation rather than actual conditions to conform to historical mapping traditions in Japan  

There are a few primary and secondary roads in every area that could be labeled unclassified if it weren't for their governmental shield designation (its a really old road, and sections are narrow  or impassible to trucks, but it is a "national" route, therefore "primary" - while the bypass route is 3 times bigger but has no designation, so it is a "tertiary road")
