After the resounding success of their first city hotel venture in Venice, Aman have spread their wings to Tokyo. The luxury travel demographic is moving away from the traditional domestic market base, and Aman have recognised this by creating an 'urban sanctuary' that is not taken up by the large local weddings which older hotels bank on. It boasts the largest rooms and suites in the city, some looking out onto Tokyo Skytree, spread over six floors at the top of the new Otemachi tower. Their spa combines Aman's renowned chemical-free essences with the Japanese health system of Kanpo, with eight generous spa treatment rooms alongside traditional-style hot baths overlooking this great city.
They couldn't have chosen a better position - there are more Tokyo subway and metropolitan lines passing through this station than any other, with the Imperial Palace a stroll away in one direction and the high fashion of Ginza in the other. This area has more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else in the world, and The Restaurant by Aman here aims to compete on this world stage for culinary innovation. From the lounge cocktails to the 1,200 bottle cellar, Aman Tokyo is the place to wine and dine, and will receive the most fashionable of local clientele alongside visitors to the city.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
