Japan wins Wanderlust 'best country to visit' award
The annual Wanderlust travel awards are voted for by the magazine’s 150,000 subscribers in a range of categories from Top Country to Top Travel Equipment Brand. Having not previously featured in the top ten countries to visit, Japan shot into first place with a 97.4% visitor satisfaction rating. With more people than ever before holidaying in Japan in 2008, the profile of Japan as a destination for UK holidaymakers has increased greatly since the country was showcased by hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2002.
Wanderlust readers recognised the same charms and fascinations that were the inspiration for the founding of InsideJapan in 2000: A remarkable depth of history and culture; exciting ultra-modern cities; a transport infrastructure of unparalleled efficiency; stunning natural landscapes and wildlife; and of course, perhaps the best food to be found anywhere on the planet!
