I'd agree with you that the above-ground power lines have gone a bit overboard. But some urban photographers have found a sort of beauty in them. Also, have you not thought this through the whole way? If Japan were to suddenly start moving all their power lines underground, it would cause massive traffic chaos with all the roadwork, not to mention the noise and dust pollution that would result for many years to come. It would be a huge undertaking that could disrupt people's lives more than the current situation.
