20,000 people used to live here, now it’s a ghost town. This is Namie, Japan, now inside the nuclear Exclusion Zone created by the Fukushima disaster. The lights are left on to maintain hope of eventually returning to the town.

Louisville, KY, Chicago (not sure what state that is), + Nashville, Tennessee. But even in general when I street view a random location. I’ve been to the countryside many a time here in the UK and I see what we call ‘Pylons’ here but those are usually on the motorway. I live in a suburban area and they are also minimal up at my end. And I live on a pretty high place compared to the city centre so i imagine wiring all the necessary power cables, phone lines, cable lines would have been a bitch to do. I never really see any other wires going from the nearest powerplant or what have you to anywhere else. But I did whenever I was in the US, many times. I have a picture lying around in my albums of a crazy almost incredibly unsafe looking wiring at traffic lights at an junction (I think you call them intersections?). I was mesmerised by it enough to take a picture. The areas in the US where I saw these wires varied from old city areas to more out of the way “sticks” areas to motorways and downtown areas. Pretty much everywhere. Of course this is only because of the stark contrast to me barely seeing any in the UK.

I’m more confused as to why they wouldn’t be underground to begin with. That way they would require less servicing/maintenance cos they wouldn’t get damaged as easy. More so that you guys have tonnes more space compared to us so you theoretically have more spaces to hide them. A couple years ago my wife in the US was telling me about a story of a horse that ran into power lines which were secured in the middle of a grassy patch near the side of the road. That would be unheard of here.
