Imperial Palace Gardens 

Aman Tokyo stands on the doorstep of the Imperial Palace, formal residence of the Emperor of Japan, and the verdant green expanse that surrounds it, with bird’s-eye views from many rooms. Visitors can explore the East Gardens and  the ruins of Edo Castle – the heart of the city for centuries – and Aman Tokyo can arrange private tours of the palace grounds. 

The art of Iaido swordsmanship

Take a private Iaido session focusing on maneuvers and samurai etiquette. Dating back to the 16th century, this graceful martial art encompasses hundreds of styles of swordsmanship, reflecting the refinement and morals of the archetypal Japanese warrior.

The ancient craft of Sakan 

Sakan, or Japanese plaster, is an ancient craft art that modern building methods are rapidly leaving behind. Few master plasterers remain in Japan, but Syuhei Hasado has found a way of combining this age-old practice with contemporary techniques to reinvent the tradition for the modern day. Graceful, precise and inspired by nature, his hand-made stucco art can be found throughout the corridors of Aman Tokyo. 

The essence of sado and wagashi

Visit a chashitsu teahouse to experience the Japanese tea ceremony in its true form, with guests preparing their own wagashi sweets to enjoy as a vital part of the ritual.

Sumida River Cruise

Experience the sights of Tokyo from a new perspective with a relaxing boat ride down the Sumida River.  A wonderful time of year to admire the city’s iconic vistas, sit back and enjoy a crisp glass of champagne while elegantly cruising past the Tokyo’s skyline aboard an award-winning river boat. The 60-minute cruise can also be taken at sunset, when the sky changes colour as day turns to night.
