Mod-traditional minimalism


Otemachi forest canopy

Thoroughly modern Aman Tokyo wows with soaring views and clean Japanese design, while simultaneously paying homage to tradition. The lobby mimics the layout of a classic home, complete with meditation garden; above, backlit shoji paper, several stories tall, takes the place of a skylight. Floor-to-ceiling windows and black volcanic rock tiles abound, and the view from the pool is likely to convert even the slowest morning person into a sunrise swimmer. And then there’s also the Qi-realigning spa, a restaurant dishing out some of the city’s best Italian cuisine, and a lounge bar lit by Tokyo’s shimmering skyline…

Our favourite rooms

You really can’t go wrong with room choices: all are impressively-sized by Tokyo standards, look out over the city and have classic Japanese minimalist design. If pushed, we’d take a Corner Suite to extend our panoramic views, but you’ll be able to indulge in long hinoki (Japanese Cypress) bath-salt soaks in oversized volcanic-rock bathtubs in any of Aman’s rooms; each has a volcanic gembu-rock tub and handy step-by-step instructions on how to properly perform the traditional bathing ritual.


Enjoy panoramic city views with your leisurely morning laps in the hotel’s 33m long indoor swimming pool: the entire high-ceilinged room and the pool itself are tiled in impressive black volcanic rock, and double-day beds are lined up along the floor-to-ceiling windows. The pool is heated in the winter, lifeguard-supervised from 6.30am to 10pm, and family friendly.


High above the bustle of Tokyo’s central business district, the zen-like Aman Spa embraces a philosophy of balance and harmony with nature; it has a Japanese bath, steam room and eight treatment rooms, two of which are for couples. Choose from a range of treatments, including hot stone massages, reflexology and acupressure facials, or splurge on a seasonal journey spa treatment with your significant other. Each journey starts with an herbal foot bath and a breathing exercise with calming Kuromoji oil, then is followed by a 90-minute massage with a 30-minute body scrub or wrap, or a 60-minute massage combined with a 30-minute body scrub and a 30-minute body wrap. Afterwards, bliss out in the spa’s city-view relaxation area.

Packing tips

Bring your monochrome silks and impeccable suits to complement your surroundings.


The spa also has a light-filled fitness centre for cardio and weight training, and a yoga and pilates studio with Allegro Reformers; private classes can be arranged on request.


Little Smiths are welcome, but not particularly catered to. Babysitting is available for JPY7,000 per hour, baby cots and highchairs can be provided on request, and supervised children are welcome in the pool.


Aman Tokyo is aimed at grown-ups, but little Smiths are welcome too.

Food and Drink

Photos Aman Tokyo food and drink

Top Table

In the restaurant, go for a table by the floor-to-ceiling windows for views of the Imperial Palace Garden and, on clear days, Mt Fuji in the distance. At the downstairs café, the foliage-side alfresco tables are most in demand.

Dress Code

Wear a printed flowy dress for breakfast in the restaurant or lunch in the café, and an all-black or all-white ensemble from Dover Street Market for dinner and drinks in the evening.

Hotel restaurant

The Restaurant by Aman is helmed by chef Masakazu Hiraki, who trained in Venice and pairs local vegetables, meats and seafood with imported Italian ingredients. The menu focuses on seafood and pasta dishes, including saffron tagliolini, hokkaido prawns and Italian-style grilled Wagyu steak; we particularly like the three Ts – porcini trofie, T-bone and tiramisu. Open to both guests and non-residents, the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows give a shimmering city backdrop for romantic evening meals, and a semi-open kitchen provides a dynamic glimpse of drama. Japanese and American-style breakfasts are also served in the restaurant, which is light-filled and calm in the mornings. On the ground floor of the building, dainty Aman Café serves lunches of casual French fare. It usually attracts a sizeable crowd looking for galettes and beef cheek ragout from nearby offices.

Hotel bar

With design echoing the inside of a traditional paper lantern, the Lounge by Aman looks out over the Imperial Palace Gardens. A line of shoji paper lanterns glows softly above the bar, beckoning patrons to place orders for expertly prepared drinks and light bites. In the evenings, relax in the serene lounge-with-a-view as jazz music plays; nurse a whiskey à la Bill Murray (but leave pink wig wearing for later). There’s also a cigar lounge and an in-demand afternoon tea.

Last orders

Gaze out over the city as you sip your morning coffee from 6.30am to 10.30am, mingle with the business district’s lunch crowd in the café from 11.30am to 2.30pm, and enjoy sumptuous Italian dinners from 5.30pm to 10pm.

Room service

Order snacks and drinks to your room at any time of day or night, or simply ransack your in-room minibar.

Worth getting out of bed for

Otemachi-central Aman Tokyo is on the doorstep of the verdant Imperial Palace Gardens a green expanse that surrounds the ruins of Edo Castle. If you prefer to stroll around the shops, bustling and boutique-filled Ginza is nearby. Nihonbashi, the historic commercial hub of the Edo period, is also nearby, as are the buzzing Shibuya district and the skyscraper-filled Shinjuku district
Rise and shine to explore the Tsukiji Fish Market with sushi chef Mr ‘Taisho’ Oba, then visit his diminuitive and incredibly popular restuarant, Sushi Kokoro, for a dinner of the morning’s picks. Arrange a visit to iconic Mt Fuji, a Unesco World Heritage Site, or take a private Iaido session to learn graceful martial art manoeuvres and Samurai etiquette.

Local restaurants

Low key Chibo (6F, 1-11-1 Yurakucho, Chiyoda-ku) is best for for okonomiyaki teppanyaki – filled and grilled savoury pancakes. For takeaway lunch sushi, stop by Kyubey on Ginza’s main street; at dinner, order one of their set course sushi kaiseki options for the best variety. The pillars and beams of teppanyaki restaurant Ukai-Tei (Omotesando-Gyre 5F, 5-10-1 Jingu-mae, Shibuya-ku) are made from 100-year-old Japanese elm originally used in a merchant's home in Kanazawa 150 years ago. Choose from Japanese black beef, carefully selected seafood and seasonal vegetables, all cooked in front of you on a hot teppan grill.

Local cafés

Stop by sweet shop Higashiya Ginza (1 Chome 7-7 Gina Tokyo 104-0061) for mamegashi (sweet bean snacks), monaka (long rice wafers filled with bean jam, peanut cookies and other goodies. The shop also sells dainty homewares and tea-making accoutrements. Enjoy afternoon tea at modern salon the Sabo Teahouse; you can also choose from a variety of confectioneries, light bites and liquors.

Local bars

A personalised cocktail tasting experience awaits you at Gen Yamamoto; the cocktails are concocted to suit your preferences, and all use seasonal local fresh produce and fine liquors.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this luxury hotel in Tokyo and unpacked their favourite Aman Spa potions and kimono-inspired wrap, a full account of their luxury city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Aman Tokyo in Japan…

We’ve already gone up 33 storeys, but the lobby’s impossibly high ceiling – reminiscent of traditional Japanese house walls with its backlit shoji paper – has us craning our necks and looking up. In fact, the entire lobby is laid out like a traditional Japanese home, with its courtyard, living area and even a meditation garden.

Up in our room, floor-to-ceiling windows wow with sweeping city views (all the way to Mt Fuji on a clear day) and a bold volcanic-rock bath tub is lined with herbal-scented unguents and a detailed how-to guide for a proper bath ritual. Soaking can wait, though: the evening’s relaxation is sorted with an Aman Spa treatment, a leisurely Italian dinner (lit by the city skyline) and an eventual collapse into the serenely beckoning bed. Kon'nichiwa indeed, Tokyo.
