殺風景

さっぷうけい [sappuukei] – A bland or uninspiring environment. 風景 [fuukei] is the word for a scene or view of somewhere. In front of it we add the kanji 殺, which usually means “to kill”, but in this word means something more like “to dull” or “to remove”.

Just take a look at the Google.co.jp Image Search results for 殺風景 and you’ll get the idea.
