Rediscover the city
A city with an ancient history, full of captivating cultural sites, Tokyo offers a lifetime worth of exploration. With Aman Tokyo’s expert guides, this can be condensed into a personalised journey of discovery tailored to your specific interests.
Perhaps begin just a stroll from the hotel in the Imperial Palace Gardens, discovering the historic Ote-mon and Sakurada Gates and Nijubashi Bridge. During the Edo period (1603 to 1867), Ote-mon served as the main entrance to Edo Castle, built by the Tokugawa shogunate who established the city that today is the capital of Japan.
A shopping itinerary could include artisan-run stores keeping alive ancient Japanese crafts – a brush maker from the Edo period; a producer of exquisite folding fans; a Japanese paper merchant. Or see the city through the eyes of an Ukiyo-e ‘pictures of the floating world’ art expert, who will reveal the inspiration for this 17th to 19th century genre of woodblock prints and paintings. Wander the cobbled streets with a view of Mount Fuji, explore the riverbank where the fish market used to reside, and live the scenes that inspired these works of art.
Morning walk with concierge
Every Thursday at 10am after breakfast is served, join your concierge for a fascinating guided walk around the rarefied sanctuary that is Aman Tokyo. Witness different aspects of the hotel’s daily life and gain new insights into its art, décor, design and inner workings. This complimentary experience will have a theme – revealed on the day – and will be sure to satisfy the most curious and knowledge seeking of guests.
