Street work in Kyoto's oldest geisha area, Kamishichiken, is now complete.
The unsightly telephone poles and wires have been buried under the street.
The photo above right is dated and gives an idea of what the otherwise lovely streetscape looks like.
Those poles and the wires overhead are now gone, hidden below street level.
This follows the example in areas of Gion.
We are hoping in the current political climate that some of the Abenomics windfall will make its way down to Kyoto and start work on burying the rest of the city's wires.
