Tokyo is one interesting city. It is a blend of the ultra-modern and ancient history. There are many places to see of either category. But, as with anything else, some places may be one's "cup of tea" while others aren't. Not everyone will be awed.
Japan Today has a list of eight most disappointing sightseeing spots in Tokyo that were culled from a recent survey.
Before going into the list, they wrote:
TOKYO —It’s hard to fully express just how much exposure Tokyo gets from the Japanese media. As the center of the nation’s cultural, economic, political, and entertainment worlds, websites, talk shows, and magazines are constantly running features about the city, meaning that many people have seen images and heard stories of Tokyo’s points of interest before actually visiting the locations themselves.
Because of that, it’s inevitable that some people are going to find that the real deal doesn’t mesh with their preconception of it. Japanese Internet portal Goo recently asked its users what sightseeing spots in Tokyo didn’t live up to their expectations, and from 2,168 responses compiled the following top 8 list.Some of the places I would disagree with, but as with all things, it is all subjective. What may impress one person won't impress another. The number one disappointing spot is surprising.
