In spite of this year's natural disaster, Japan was voted Favourite Long-haul Country in the Travel Awards 2011, and as the Guardian's Tokyo correspondent reports, there are many good reasons to go again soon.
It’s a little over six months since an earthquake and tsunami destroyed much of Japan’s north-east coast; rebuilding has yet to begin and the nuclear crisis is far from resolved. Yet, after taking a huge hit, tourism in Japan is starting to bounce back. This may strike some as premature, unseemly even, but readers of the Guardian and the Observer apparently think not: they named Japan their favourite long-haul country and Tokyo their favourite overseas city in our travel awards this year.
