The art of hospitality

The term omotenashi is often translated as ‘hospitality’, but it means much more. Its roots lie in the tea ceremony, in which it is the responsibility and privilege of the host to meticulously and full-heartedly brew the perfect cup. It thus encapsulates both the performance of the action, and the sincerity and purity of the heart behind it. This distinctly Japanese way of treating guests is the inspiration for the hospitality philosophy of Aman, as expressed in the family of resorts in the three capitals of Japan: Tokyo, the modern capital; Kyoto, the ancient capital; and Ise Shima, the nation’s spiritual birthplace.

Aman Tokyo Spa Swimming Pool

Aman Tokyo

There is a Japanese expression, ‘kyouka suigetsu’, which translates as ‘mirror flower, water moon’ – a condensed form of the Chinese axiom ‘flower seen in the mirror, moon reflected on the water’s surface.’ It refers to the profound emotions triggered by something beautiful but untouchable – an encounter with the intangible sublime. It’s the kind of sensation created by the sight of the city’s vast skyline from Aman Tokyo’s swimming pool high above the street level, or triggered by exquisite artwork, like those encountered on the hotel’s Art Journey, an expert-guided exploration of Tokyo’s classical and contemporary galleries. From the heights of the Otemachi Tower, Aman Tokyo is a bubble of tranquillity high above the clamour and bustle of the urban landscape, offering its guests extraordinary personal encounters with the highlights of modern-day Japan.

Amanemu outdoor spa area

Amanemu

Immersed in nature, Amanemu is surrounded by the coastal forest of Ise-Shima National Park, and every suite incorporates its own onsen, inviting guests to enjoy the mineral-rich waters whenever they wish. Outdoors, the thermal springs feed two shallow bathing pools, one warm, one cooler, which offer an enticing space to relax beneath the starry night sky. Here, in a spiritually resonant setting close to Ise-Jingu, Amanemu’s spa provides facilities and programmes to balance body and soul, including saunas and cold water baths, with therapies such as acupuncture, moxibustion, shiatsu, yoga and guided breathing to help strengthen the immune system.

Aman Kyoto

Welcome to an ethereal landscape of Japanese maple trees, mature cedar, cypress, and camellia. The colours of Aman Kyoto’s garden shift with the seasons, marking time in changing shades of crimson, green and gold. Aman Kyoto is a living tribute to the late master architect Kerry Hill, the visionary creator of all three of Aman’s Japanese destinations. True to the Aman aesthetic he helped define, very much inspired by Japanese notions of beauty, Aman Kyoto’s buildings have been designed with characteristic sensitivity to the surroundings, exhibiting a simplicity and elegance that enhances the natural beauty of the setting.

The Art of Tokyo

Take an immersive tour of Tokyo’s creative culture and history with a tailor-made Art Journey through the city’s contemporary and classical art galleries. Insiders Renna Okubo and Wakako Tezen, both experienced curators and consultants, lead bespoke tours built around personal interests, including both leading galleries and off-the-beaten-track independent art spaces normally inaccessible to the public. After a preliminary consultation, Renna and Wakako develop a personalised one-day itinerary by private car, which might include classical Japanese art, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and can also incorporate visits to architectural landmarks, as well as revered book and stationery shops. Ideal for both experienced connoisseurs and the culturally curious, Aman Tokyo’s Art Journey can also be adapted to assist prospective collectors looking to acquire new pieces.

Healing from nature

Inspired by the wellness-enhancing power of the natural world, Aman’s resorts in Japan each offer focused wellbeing retreats designed to support and strengthen the immune system. In the spiritually resonant and naturally restorative setting of Ise-Shima, Amanemu offers a one-night programme tapping into the ancient healing practice of onsen hot-spring bathing, whereas Aman Kyoto’s two-night itinerary incorporates hot-spring therapy, yoga and meditation to restore balance to body and mind.

Sacred paths of the pilgrims

For over a thousand years, visitors to Ise-Shima have followed the Kumano Kodo pilgrim routes – the network of remote trails that link Japan’s Kumano Sanzan grand shrines and pass through a soul-stirring realm of rocks and trees, rivers and waterfalls. Collectively designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2004, the ancient paths are a three-hour drive form Amanemu, and the resort can arrange multi-day Arrival Journeys taking in the most inspiring sites join the route, including grand Shinto shrines and hidden mountain bathhouses.

Artistic inspiration and moments of Zen

The 17th-century polymath Honami Koetsu is one of the most influential figures in Kyoto’s cultural history. His nature-inspired decorative paintings, ceramics and lacquerware were instrumental in establishing the Rinpa school of art, with its vibrant colours, literary interests and love of the natural landscape. Close to Aman Kyoto, a private temple offers guests insights into the life of the artist, as well as seven tea houses. Koetsu was a devotee of the tea ceremony, and Aman Kyoto guests are invited to join a monk for tea as part of an exclusive Zen meditation journey at the Temple.
