Kyoto overtourism

In Europe, Venice, Barcelona or Amsterdam are complaining that they are dying from over tourism, although I have experienced this myself, I must that nothing compares to Kyoto where last year, I gave up one morning at 10am and left the city disgusted, frustrated and sad.

Local people cannot have a life there anymore, the city is crowded with groups from 8am til dawn, people push to walk, you cannot stop anywhere, you cannot have perspective on any monument you want to visit for example, such a shame… what can we do to address this?

help needed before this is destroyed by tourism
