28.07.2017

Aman Tokyo

A five-star Zen experience at Aman Tokyo.

You can see Mount Fuji from the soaking tub. Yes, it may require rising early, before the haze obscures the sacred mountain, but these ephemeral experiences are what the new Aman Tokyo is all about.

Occupying the top six floors of Otemachi Tower, just blocks from Tokyo Station and the Imperial Palace Gardens, the hotel is coolly postmodern but still Japanese in aesthetic. On most afternoons, a traditional koto player strums in a soaring lobby dominated by a rock garden and 30-metre-high architectural feature resembling the interior of a washi paper lantern. A wall sculpture by plaster artist Syuhei Hasado celebrates the fall of faded cherry blossoms. The 84 guestrooms and suites are serenely uncluttered: a bleached camphor-wood platform bed faces the cityscape while the bathroom has heated stone floors and shoji screen doors.

The two-floor spa complex includes a 30-metre lap pool and Zen wellness facilities. The restaurant shines at breakfast, with butter and honey sourced from farmers in Tokyo prefecture. The hotel's Black Tea is a darkly amusing interpretation of this afternoon institution; treats such as black sesame scones are served on obsidian-hued ceramics.

Aman Tokyo, Otemachi Tower, 1-5-6 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, +81 03 5224 3333
