That is not true.

In Germany you can find a lot of graffiti/old buildings but not spaghetti electricity.
Japan is like the No. 1 in terms of spaghetti electricity.

How do you know? You walked in the slums of France?

Japan does have overhead wiring but its not spaghetti-styled and its definitely not number 1 in that.

Well it's certainly one of the top ones if not No. 1.

Not that it's a bad thing. I think it's kinda cool.

I agree.

I've been to Tel Aviv, Israel is also among my favorite countries but many buildings look as if they're about to collapse. I'm talking mostly about the downtown, there are parts with considerably better view such as you may google Ramat Aviv or "Northern Star"(forgot the Hebrew name). Herzlya nearby Tel Aviv looks quite luxurious too.

Cars are "OK" though, not quite reaching Dubai level of OK, but newish despite being super expensive to maintain from what I've heard.

Ok Japan can be the No. 1 in developed world in terms of spaghetti wires. Vietnam is really poor so it's not a fair comparison.

I still think it looks normal. Graffiti annoys me but it's not really a big deal either. You guys probably have a higher standard of architectural aesthetics.

Overhead powerlines are on the increase here. Easier to repair after earthquakes.

What buildings with holes?

This is poor compared to some modernish buildings in Georgia. Forget it.
