Kyoto's 50 Overrated Tourist Spots

For those who wish to immerse themselves in Japanese history and culture, a visit to Kyoto is a must.

The are many places to see and visit in Kyoto, while most are very popular with foreign visitors, some have found them to be overrated. A survey commissioned by goo Ranking (interesting name, eh?) found 50 places in Kyoto to be overrated by those surveyed. I found it interesting that the JR Kyoto Station (featured in Gamera 3) is not on the list.

Before going into the rankings, What Japan Thinks wrote:
Kyoto city and the surrounding prefecture are full of historic spots worth a visit, but of course some places are going to be over-hyped. So, goo Ranking recently conducted a survey looking at Kyoto prefecture tourist spots that didn’t live up to expectations.

I would disagree on several of them being overrated, but then that's just me.

To see what they are, go here
