A dizzying mixture of old ways and modern style, crowds and calm, and arguably the best food scene on the planet.
One of Tokyo’s plushest addresses, the Aman is modern, spacious and meticulously stylish throughout – from opulent spa and restaurants to the 84 rooms and suites that draw on traditional Japanese sensibilities with touches like deep-soaking ofuro baths.
Located on the top six floors of a skyscraper in the Otemachi business district, the Aman comes with superb city views – as does the spa, which spreads over two floors, and is the largest in the city. A truly zen sanctuary, the spa showcases traditional Japanese wellness traditions, including traditional kampo therapies derived from traditional Chinese medicine, that rebalance using the power of natural herbs.
Handily placed for all the main sites – the Imperial Palace, Ginza and Nihonbashi districts, and Tokyo Station are all nearby – staying at the Aman also gives access to experiences including a private dinner and entertainment at one of the capital’s most exclusive geisha houses.
The 30m black granite pool, in the skyscraper-topping spa, comes with views through the clouds to Mount Fuji.
Also try the spa’s misogi experience (named after a traditional Shinto purification ritual that uses water to cleanse the body and reset the mind). Glide between traditional showers, hot baths and steam to achieve purification. From there, move on to the ‘Signature Spa Journey’ – an indulgent, hour-long head-to-toe scrub featuring balancing camphor, soothing kuromoji powder and Japanese clay.
The city’s elite socialise in this protective shield of serenity but take the hotel’s ear-popping elevator to ground level to be swept along by a tsunami of salarymen, bound for gleaming skyscraper offices and karaoke bars.
The Imperial Palace, Tokyo Station and the pick of restaurants and designer stores are close by.
