Minimalist interiors and clever use of natural materials create a Zen-like experience
Building on its portfolio of high-end resort hotels in some of the world’s most iconic travel destinations, Aman opened its Tokyo property on the top six levels of the Otemachi Tower in the center of the city. True to the ethos of its other hotels, it delivers a stunning guest experience. You'll get a sense of what you are stepping into immediately upon entering the spacious lobby, complete with a rock and water garden that recalls some of Japan’s famous traditional gardens. The 30-meter-high ceiling resembling a paper lantern is a work of art in itself.
The hotel’s rooms and suites continue the theme and draw on traditional Japanese homes for their inspiration. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in natural light that shows off the wood, washi paper and stone interiors, married with modern technology and luxurious fabrics. And there is more beauty in the detail. Syuhei Hasado, a traditional master plasterer, has incorporated miniature works of art from the natural world into the overall design. Of all the hotel’s remarkable restaurant and bar options, do not miss Musashi. Led by Master Chef Musashi, it serves mouth-watering sushi paired with carefully selected sakes and wines at a “hinoki” wood counter.
