Little differences: Power lines

Power lines in Japan are mostly above ground.  I've heard this is because of earthquake damage (easier to see where the break is rather than digging cables up) but others say that creates the problem of fallen poles and wires blocking roads after a disaster.  I've also heard overhead is cheaper than buried lines.  Either way, definitely makes for a different view.
