wiry

If you love wires, then Osaka is the place for you. It's definitely the wiriest place I know.

Everywhere you go, there are wires. They can mostly be found hanging majestically across the streets, preferring the open air to being stuffed underground. Occasionally they can also be seen bundled up for no apparent reason, as below.



Even under my own roof, I am confronted by wires. And they're starting to take over. This is the situation in my flat.....



Yes, it's getting out of control. It could well be a fire hazard, especially if I doused it in petrol and dropped a match on it. So if this blog suddenly stops being updated for no apparent reason, it probably means my living quarters underwent a bit of this:

Thats a lot of wires!
But, back in the UK, I got used to having a load of roadworks because those lines are underground. I notice that most of these wires are above ground in JP meaning less roadworks I guess.

Japan definitely is covered in wires like a plate of spaghetti. There are way too many power poles and power/telephone lines all over the place.

I feel sorry for any obsessive compulsive who has a thing for untangling wires.

The original pioneer of electricity would usually be the one to blame, but Nikola Tesla the 'father of electricity' actually designed wireless conduction of electricity across large distances. I guess the wire makers union just would not have any of that, and hence the current predicament continues to ravage the lives of those who buy many gadgets that like to be connected to the grid.
