From BBC Travel section with Lonely Planet (2/17/2012), by Josey Miller:
Asia-Pacific high budget: Tokyo, Japan
This sprawling metropolis is consistently ranked among the most expensive cities worldwide, but since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Tokyo needs your tourism dollars now more than ever. Despite the high price tag, the city’s culinary scene is top notch — Tokyo offers more Michelin-star-rated restaurants than Paris! For starters, sushi snobs will be hard pressed to find fresher fish than at Kyubey. And for a taste of Japan’s signature Kobe beef, try Seryna — you may even find a menu in English. Stay for at least 10 days at the over-the-top Peninsula Hotel, and aim for May when the rainfall and heat are not at their peak — but average sunshine is.
Fresh fish, Kobe beef… Fukushima does not exist in the minds of people at BBC; the cache was cleared long time ago, apparently.
