About road names drawn by Carto

Almost all roads in Japan that are managed by local governments have names.

In some cases, local governments publish the names of their roads on their websites, which is a very useful source of information.

In addition, each piece of land in Japan is small, so the roads are like a spider’s web.

The following example shows how to name each road with a “name” tag.

As you can see, at zoom level 15 the map is not beautiful due to the names of the roads.
Is there a better way to solve this problem?
