The turquoise Aegean laps Amanruya’s private pebble beach, while ancient pine forests scent the air. Resting amid olive groves and cypress trees on the Bodrum Peninsula’s serene north coast, the village-like resort is a secluded retreat offering an abundance of space and privacy.
Our understanding of different cultures is led by our senses, whether the taste of authentic cuisine, the appreciation of local arts and crafts or the scent of a place – from fresh pine forest to sweet cherry blossom. These senses connect us with our surroundings, and at Aman Kyoto, the opportunity to further one’s appreciation of Old Japan can be furthered at the Sounds of the Shinobue event - a homage to the traditional Japanese bamboo flute that dates back to ancient times.
Performing against Aman Kyoto’s forested backdrop, internationally renowned Shinobue player and composer, Kazuya Sato, will serenade guests from the terrace of The Living Pavilion, evoking a distinct sense of warmth and nostalgia, creating a connection between oneself and the beautiful natural surroundings.
The event will take place on 16 October, 30 October and 6 November 2021.
Enjoy a private outdoor painting lesson with a local artist surrounded by the sounds of birdsong and babbling streams. In a peaceful forest glade, learn the ancient art of pattern dyeing, traditionally used for decorating kimonos, and be inspired by nature in the making of postcards for distant loved ones.
