This does not mean cheaper electricity ! It means more companies making / taking more proffit from the people. Just as privatisation in other countries, no change occurres just fat cats ( politicians with shares) get a pice of the cake in new pies. More regulators more cost to manage, more jobs for gov more opertuniy for retirement positions.

How about keeping 1 for history's sake and for architectural students to study? No, of course, this is Japan. Knock it all down.
You should go and see the historic architectural display where some significant buildings have been relocated. Not much but better than many countries.
