In Japan, the term omotenashi is often translated as ‘hospitality’ yet in practice it means much more. Its roots lie in the ritual of the tea ceremony, where it is both the responsibility and the honour of the host to meticulously and whole-heartedly perform the making and brewing of the perfect cup. This distinctly Japanese way of treating guests leads the hospitality philosophy at every Aman, but nowhere is it better expressed than at its three properties in Japan.
Whether hosting an elaborate private dinner at Aman Tokyo, celebrating a milestone or anniversary at Aman Kyoto, or retreating as a family to one of Amanemu’s spacious villas, shared moments with loved ones are made even more memorable and meaningful when imbued with omotenashi spirit.
In a city famous for its exceptional restaurant scene, Aman Tokyo has become renowned for its unrivalled dining experiences, elaborate afternoon teas and creative seasonal menus.
