Aman Tokyo – the first city property from a leader in luxury


by James Rangihika July 08, 2016

Aman resorts occupy some of the most breathtaking locations around the world, with a particular knack for combining world-class design with the authentic flavour of each destination. The new Aman Tokyo is a triumph of Japanese style in one of the capital’s most prestigious locations.

The hotel cleverly reveals itself through a series of unique design elements, blending a mix of traditional Japanese design with contemporary flair. Playing with an abundance of daylight, classic Japanese materials such as camphor wood, Washi paper and stone are fused with modern technology and a variety of fabrics and textures to create a subtle interplay of shadow and light.

Meticulously designed for both leisure and business travellers, Aman Tokyo’s 84 rooms and suites are spacious and modern, drawing inspiration from the Japanese aesthetic. Each room and suite has a large furo, a deep soaking tub that is a core part of the Japanese ritual of bathing. 

But perhaps the most impressive aspect of the property is its inner garden. Celebrating the creative tradition of Japan is the prominent Ikebana, an art form in which living branches, leaves and blossoms are arranged to represent a closeness with nature. This sits atop a calming water feature and is complemented by two traditional Japanese rock gardens. Designed to reflect the feeling of Zen, the rock gardens are minimal in design and intended to calm the mind, drawing it away from everyday concerns towards an appreciation for nature in the raw.  www.amanresorts.com
