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

At Taka-An, there’re are no à la carte options, and no two meals are ever the same. The restaurant follows Japan’s omakase dining tradition, whereby the chef channels their creative abilities and refined understanding of ingredients to create a tailored meal for each guest.

Taka-an is currently open for Aman Kyoto residents guests.
