Taka-An Japanese Restaurant at Aman Kyoto


Open to both Aman guests and non-residents, Taka-an offers an invitation to experience the authentic Japanese art of hospitality, which is characterised by balance and equilibrium – and where the texture of the tableware is as important as the flavour of the food on the plate. In this fastidiously curated environment, every element – atmosphere, design and cuisine – work together, in harmony.


A heritage of creativity

Three centuries ago, the artist and polymath Honami Koetsu helped shape the culture and creative life of the Takagamine district of Kyoto, and from there, Japan as a whole. Taka-an is a culinary homage to his legacy – his artistic legacy explored and expressed through food and hospitality.

Local flavours

Honouring Koetsu’s legacy, the chef selects ingredients as an artist selects their palette, prepares them with meticulous precision, to serve dishes that transform Kyoto’s seasonal produce into works of gastronomic art.

Omakase dining traditions

Creating gastronomic art is Chef Shinichiro Takagi, who joins Taka-an as Executive Chef. Born and raised in the city of Kanazawa in the Ishikawa region, Chef Takagi has the unique ability to imagine a dish without a menu in mind. Such creativity means that when dining at Taka-an, no two meals will be the same. The restaurant will follow Japan’s omakase dining tradition, whereby the chef channels their creative abilities and refined understanding of ingredients to create a specially tailored meal for each and every guest.

Taka-an is open for Aman Kyoto residents and non-resident guests.
